The Climate Policy Network provides a forum for the policy-oriented discussion of scientific results on future strategies for addressing the problem of climate change in an international context. Based on high-level academic standing, the network aims at enhancing the understanding of determinants of cooperation and broad participation in an international climate regime. The research agenda is designed to facilitate a vital exchange of ideas between researcher and policy makers and to stimulate additional research in order to provide a sound basis for future policy interventions. A core interest of the network is to identify both, fragmentation and coherence of climate policy strategies in the US, the EU and on a global scale. Workshops are organised by the partners in turn.
