Understanding Climate Change Negotiations: Contributions from International Negotiation and Conflict Management
Climate change is the largest and most complicated interdependent situation the world has confronted. Yet there is little negotiation and conflict-management knowledge in a climate change context. To address this lacuna, this theoretical article reviews the sparse extant literature and provides a brief overview of the science of climate change public policy. This review establishes a foundation for examining negotiation and conflict-management research questions that emanate from current and future climate change negotiations. Such questions are considered for climate change mitigation negotiations and climate change adaptation negotiations. This article demonstrates how the negotiation and conflict-management field can make important contributions to the study of interdependency in a climate change context.
