Governing Climate Change: Polycentricity in Action?

5-8 March 2018, Heerlen, The Netherlands

Deadline for applications – 15th October 2017

We are pleased to announce the call for applications is now open for the second INOGOV Spring School. The Spring School is aimed at Early Career Researchers (i.e. PhD students, Research Masters students, and researchers that have obtained their PhD <7 years ago) with an interest in developing expertise around climate change policy and governance. There is no fee for the spring school and reasonable funding will be available to cover travel and accommodation expenses.

Using a flipped classroom model, the Spring School will cover:

  • The notion and practical expression of polycentric governance in the specific context of climate change
  • Conceptual frameworks surrounding the notion of governance inventions, their diffusion and evaluation
  • Policy entrepreneurs, experiments, proof of principle and instrument constituencies as they relate to governance interventions
  • Diffusion of governance inventions, including internal and external drivers, barriers and post adoption adaptations
  • Evaluation, including outputs and outcomes
  • The role of political power and knowledge
  • Methods for studying innovations in climate governance
