Abstract

"Institutionalizing Unsustainability: The Paradox of Global Climate Governance." Hayley Stevenson. University of California Press. January 2013. --- Climate change is a global phenomenon that requires a global response, and yet climate-change governance depends on the ability of individual states to respond to a long-term, uncertain threat. Focusing on the experiences of India, Spain, and Australia, Hayley Stevenson aims to show how these countries have struggled to integrate global norms around climate-change governance with their own deeply unsustainable domestic systems, leading to profoundly irrational ecological outcomes. Reviewed by Tim Forsyth.
