About this book

To deal effectively with transboundary environmental problems such as climate change, it is important to have an idea of the model for an "efficient" and "fair" policy. An understanding of the strategic interactions involved in the international decision-making process is also essential. In this volume Carsten Helm uses rigorous theoretical reasoning and applications to address these issues. The first part of the book contains a normative analysis based on fair division theory and welfare theory. The empirical focus is on burden sharing in the climate change regime, for which a concrete proposal is derived. The book then extends the perspective by taking into account the self-interest of sovereign states. Using co-operative game theory the potential for Pareto efficient co-operation is analyzed. Finally, Carsten Helm applies non-cooperative game theory to analyze issues such as environmental and welfare effects of emissions trading, the misuse of scientific uncertainties as a bargaining tool and the effects of discontinuities in environmental systems on co-operation.

Contents

Part 1 International policy in the fairness mode: an axiomatic approach to fair burden sharing; a welfarist approach to fair burden sharing. Part 2 International policy in the co-operative mode: environmental co-operation as a coalitional game. Part 3 International policy in the non-cooperative mode: international emissions trading and the choice of allowances; co-operation behind the veil of scientific uncertainty; dynamics aspects and threshold effects; outlook.
