Science and Policy in the International Framing och the Climate Change Issue
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister)Student thesisAlternative title
Vetenskap och politik i den internationella inramningen av klimatförändringarna (Swedish)
The IPCCand the FCCC are both central institutions in the international handling of the climate change issue. How these institutions frame and define the climate change issue is decisive for the action taken in response. The aim of this thesis was to analyze and describe how the climate change problem is framed and defined within the FCCC and the IPCC. Furthermore, the aim was also to examine if there are any differences between the IPCC’s and the FCCC’s framings and definitions of the climate change problem, and if so, what those differences consist of. The analysis was based on a line of documents from the IPCC and the FCCC, which were analyzed through a qualitative textual analysis.
