The Role of EU and US Non-State Actors in the Global Environmental System. A Focus on Climate Change
This paper investigates the climate regime as a case study to assess the engagement of non-state actors from across the Atlantic with the global environmental system. After a short introduction on the role of non-state actors in environmental governance, the paper analyses concrete instances where these actors have engaged in formal law-making processes and informal standard-setting exercises, as well as litigation concerning climate change law and policy. The conclusions draw a comparative assessment of the contribution of non-state actors from across the Atlantic to the climate regime, and more general reflections on non-state agency in the global environmental system, raising questions for further investigation.
