and Transitional Policy after Copenhagen

George Square · Edinburgh EH8 9JU
Dr Feng Cunwan
Associate Professor of International Relations
Since the 1990s, the EU has taken a leading role in international climate negotiations, with a series of ambitious climate diplomacy strategies. At the Copenhagen Conference in 2009, however, the EU’s climate diplomacy faltered, both structurally and instrumentally. Feng Cunwan (Wuhan University), Visiting Research Fellow at the Edinburgh Europa Institute, will speak to the reasons for this predicament, the subsequent transformation of EU policy and the impact of these changes.
