Russian Climate Policy: Domestic Dynamics and
The main objectives of this
To understand internal constraints
and dynamics in Russian climate policy formation as well as conditions for
change in Russia's emission trends and international climate position.
To analyse Russia's influence on the effectiveness of the
international climate regime and negotiation process.
are examined as follows:
How has Russia's climate
position changed since the ratification of the Kyoto Protocol?
Which domestic discourses can be identified on climate
policy? Which of these argumentations are reflected in Russia's international
Which domestic pressure groups
influence Russia's international climate position, and could thus be considered
as 'veto players'? Is there evidence of such two-level game?
Which dynamics are likely to influence Russia's greenhouse
gas emission trends and how?
Which elements of Russia's
international climate position are negotiable / non-negotiable and why?
