Bratislava was the location for this year’s annual INOGOV meeting, held 2-3rd June 2016. The meeting’s focus was ‘New directions in climate policy and governance: polycentricity in action?’, and was hosted by SPECTRA, Centre for Excellence at the Slovak University of Technology and Slovak Academy of Sciences. The meeting provided a unique opportunity for INOGOV Management Committee members, recipients of INOGOV funding, and leading scholars from the wider scientific community, to meet and discuss the research undertaken during the first and second year of the Action, and proposed activities for the year ahead. Representatives from 21 of the 28 INOGOV countries attended, and presentations were given by researchers from all funded activities, as well as two excellent key note speakers: Prof Marco Janssen (Arizona State University) – ‘Governing global climate change from the bottom up’ and Dr Victor Galaz (Stockholm Resilience Centre) – ‘Beyond environmental institutions – complexity and polycentric governance in the Anthropocene’.
