Overview

How do domestic interests affect international policymaking? What is the role of the nation-state within multilateral regimes? How can we understand the diversity of state responses to the internationalization of environmental regulation? National Governance and the Global Climate Change Regime compares the roles of different actors and institutions in international environmental policymaking. It focuses on the formation of a legally binding treaty to reduce greenhouse gases, the Kyoto Protocol, to show how domestic interests affect international treaty negotiations. Dana Fisher combines quantitative analysis of social, economic, and environmental data for the member-states of the OECD with qualitative case studies of three key countries, the United States, Japan, and the Netherlands. She argues compellingly that domestic debates within states and subsequent national policy formation have a significantly larger role in international environmental regime formation than many scholars recognize.
