Inhalt Based on studies in International Political Economy, this course first identifies and provides an overview of relevant policy issues, actors, and institutions in the context of global governance of energy and climate policy issues. In particular, the course aims to gather a better understanding of political and economic dilemmas associated with domestic and international cooperation on energy and climate policy. Along the course, we also learn what constitutes ``good" or ``legitimate" transnational and international governance in terms of participation, rule-making, monitoring, and enforcement. The course should be of interest, particularly - but not limited - to students interested in international energy and climate policy-making and academic research involving international cooperation. Active class participation is essential for completing the course successfully. It is not a strict requirement, but I assume students have a basic understanding of econometrics (regressions) and game theory.

Lernziele The goal of this course is to provide an overview of issues associated with collective policy-making in climate and energy policy domains from political-economic perspectives. Through various examples mentioned in the course, you will also see how typical analytical methods in Economics (game theory and econometrics) can help you understand the world more systematically.
Literatur Reading materials ("required" or "recommended") are mostly from published scholarly articles, book chapters, reports by international organizations, and higher-quality blog posts. You can access all the materials on ADAM.
Bemerkungen The course is 4h weekly, but only in the second half of the term.
