Capacity to Govern Climate Mitigation in China and
This project looks at formal and informal
institutions in Chinese and Russian climate policy implementation, and asks:
Under which conditions and in what ways does the low governing capacity of
these countries influence their climate-mitigation measures?
question is approached by examining how weak formal institutions and strong
informal institutions contribute to the processes of mitigation policy
formulation and implementation. What mechanisms influential to the outcomes of
mitigation policies do these institutional dynamics create in the planned
economy tradition? What do these mechanisms look like in practice, who drives
them and why, and how do they influence mitigation policy processes? And how do
the outputs of climate policy processes look, as a result of these
Can some common lessons be learnt, or can China and Russia
be expected to follow completely separate logics in terms of formulating and
implementing their mitigation policies?
