DELREUX T. - EU Environmental and Climate Policy (30h)

Professor Tom DELREUX

The course aims to introduce to students the state of play of the EU’s environmental and climate policies. It discusses the development and the driving forces of the EU’s environmental policy, the main political dynamics in the policy cycle, the EU’s policy instruments and activities in the traditional and the ‘new’ environmental subdomains, and the role of the EU in global environmental politics.

Approaching the EU’s environmental and climate policies from the perspective of the debates on sustainability and transition governance, the course emphasizes the horizontal and cross-sectoral nature of environmental and climate policies, as well as their interactions with other policy domains (such as transport, energy or agriculture).
