Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change will convene in Paris in December for the 21st time since the Convention’s establishment in 1992. International cooperation on climate change has evolved tremendously over this period and now appears headed towards a new cooperative architecture based on a patchwork of voluntary pledges, or “intended nationally determined contributions,” many of which have been negotiated (in-part) in bilateral and plurilateral contexts. This talk will draw on a major synthesis of the scholarly literature on international climate change cooperation conducted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change which the speaker was closely involved in. Highlights
from academic research will be put into the context of recent
 developments on the run-up to the Paris conference.

All are welcome!  Refreshments will be served
