What People are Saying About This

Frank Biermann

Mindmade Politics is a truly original contribution to earth system governance research that will have its impact way beyond the field of climate politics. This theoretically and methodologically highly innovative volume opens up an entirely new perspective on intergovernmental negotiations: arguing that a focus on cognitive processes, including personal emotions, can help explain global norm building in a new way that traditional theories in international relations largely missed. The ambitious and novel research program that Milkoreit develops is important and sure to prosper.

Paul Wapner

Mindmade Politics peeks inside the brain of climate negotiators and perceptively demonstrates how cognition shapes climate politics. We owe Milkoreit a huge debt for breaking new conceptual ground in the service of global environmental protection.
