Climate governance beyond 2012. Competing discourses of green governmentality, ecological modernization and civic environmentalism
2007 (English)In: The Social Construction of Climate Change. Power, Knowledge, Norms, Discourses / [ed] Mary E. Pettenger, Hamsphire, Burlington: Ashgate Publishing Ltd , 2007, 123-147 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Individuals, international organizations and states are calling for the world to confront climate change. Efforts such as the Kyoto Protocol have produced intractable disputes and are deemed inadequate. This volume adopts two constructivist perspectives - norm-centred and discourse - to explore the social construction of climate change from a broad, theoretical level to particular cases. The contributors contend that climate change must be understood from the context of social settings, and that we ignore at our peril how power and knowledge structures are generated. They offer a greater understanding of why current efforts to mitigate climate change have failed and provide academics and policy makers with a new understanding of this important topic.
