Abstract

The European Union (EU) has made significant efforts during recent decades to establish itself as a global leader on climate change, both in the development of its internal policies and in cultivating its role in international climate negotiations (Jordan et al. 2010). The EU’s stature on the international stage has particularly grown since 2001. The rescue of the Kyoto Protocol following the US’s exit, the 2004 EU-Russia deal on Kyoto ratification and the introduction of the EU emissions trading scheme in 2005 are often cited as notable ‘victories’ in moving the international community towards a more comprehensive and effective climate governance regime.
