Beschreibung

The proliferation of environmental agreements is a defining feature of modern international relations that has attracted considerable academic attention. Typically focusing on happy-end stories of policy creation, the cooperation literature often ignores issue areas where policy agreements are absent. Science and International Environmental Policy introduces nonregimes into the study of global governance, and compares successes with failures in the formation of environmental treaties. By exploring collective decisions not to cooperate, it explains why international institutions form but also why, when, and how they do not emerge.

Pressestimmen

Everyone knows that scientific information matters in understanding international environmental cooperation. In this book, Radoslav Dimitrov provides a valuable service by showing us what kind of information matters. Importantly, he demonstrates that whatunderpins cases of international environmental cooperation is a shared understanding of negative transboundary consequences, even if information about the extent of a problem or its human-related causes is not conclusive. He evaluates his hypothesesin four rich cases including those where attempted global agreements were not reached (or where little attempt at international cooperation has been made), an essential and often overlooked aspect of understanding when states will succeed at cooperative agreements. He is careful to delineate the pieces of the puzzle he seeks to explain and what is outside the framework of his study. This is a framework that can - and should - be evaluated in many other cases; it will be important in predicting patternsof cooperation in emerging environmental issues. -- Elizabeth R. DeSombre, Wellesley College The type of knowledge about non-regimes matters! More precisely, two major innovations characterize Radoslav Dimitrov's Science and International Environmental Policy. First, he innovatively untangles the roles which different types of knowledge play in the formation of international regimes, and second, he overcomes a major shortcoming of the international regime literature by explicitly including non-regime cases in his analysis. This book will ignite a productive debate - of relevance to academia and the practical design of international regimes alike. -- Detlef Sprinz, Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, and University of Potsdam, Germany In this impressive book, Radoslav Dimitrov makes two important contributions to international environmental politics. He advances a novel, provocative and carefully argued claim about how scientific knowledge can influence formation of international environmental regimes; and he provides the first empirical investigation in this field that considers both instances of successful regime formation and failed attempts. In addition, the book's self-contained and well-written case histories, particularly of the under-examined issues of forests and coral reefs, will make it valuable for teaching. -- Edward A. Parson, University of Michigan This book addresses a longstanding gap in research on the formation of international environmental regimes. Focusing on the role of scientific knowledge, Dimitrov sheds new light on the determinants of regime formation by comparing success stories with cases in which the parties cannot reach agreement, or even fail to initiate an effort to form a regime. -- Oran Young, University of California, Santa Barbara Everyone knows that scientific information matters in understanding international environmental cooperation.
