About this book

In 2014, European heads of state selected new targets for the EU as part of the 2030 climate and energy framework. These targets will guide the ambition and nature of EU policy in this area until 2030 and are likely to have important implications for Europe’s transition to a low-carbon economy. This book exposes the role of civil society and business interest groups in setting the policymaking agenda and defining the range of options for the framework. Based on a unique sample of 32 in-depth interviews with Brussels policy elites, this book casts EU interest representation in a new light. In a novel application of the ‘multiple streams approach’, sequential chapters present the problems faced by policymakers, the range of policy options available to address them and the political constraints within which policy entrepreneurs attempted to attached policies to problems.

Reviews

“Fitch-Roy and Fairbrass have written an empirically rich and well-structured book on EU climate and energy policy at a particular salient moment. They successfully apply Kingdon's multiple streams framework, but also find that the processes is not primarily characterized by a few eager policy entrepreneurs exploiting a policy window. The book nicely captures and make sense of a complex process. I recommend this book for students, scholars and practitioners interested in EU climate and energy policy.” (Elin Lerum Boasson, Associate Professor, Department of Political Science, University of Oslo)
