Experiments Bibliography

Bibliography for Climate Governance Experiments
Below are a number of works, some that directly discuss specific climate governance experiments others that address theoretical concepts helpful for thinking about climate governance experiments.  This is not a comprehensive list (and it may not be representative either) of works on climate governance, rather it is a list of works that have influenced and aided the development of my climate governance experiments research project.  Feel free to send citations for inclusion.

  1. I’m currently working on security governance experiments at the Dissertation level. I’d like to know what is the state of the debate in other disciplines. The work you have been developed on environmental governance experiments called my attention. In particular I would like to know what is the bibliography you use.
    Thanks ,

  2. Hi Tatiana
    Thanks for your comment–it spurred me to post a bibliography. What’s on the site now is a partial list of works that have informed my thinking on climate governance experiments and have shed light on particular experimental activities.

  3. Professor Hoffman, I have been familiar with your work for some time. But I am intrigued by your reference to climate governance experiments. How do you define these? Is your use of reference to experiments to similar to its usage in experimental and behavioural economics and the work of poverty labs in development economics? How do political scientists approach experimental research?

  4. Bharat,
    Thanks for your note and questions. I am not using the term experiment in the same way as behavioral economics–I am not undertaking climate governance experiments myself. Rather, I am studying climate governance initiatives that I consider to be experimental–they are innovative efforts to make rules to address climate change being undertaken by actors not usually associated with climate governance (cities, provinces, NGO-corporate alliances, etc). They are experimental in that the initiatives have a trial and error quality and are being undertaken in many ways to consciously try and innovate. But let me reiterate, I use the term experiment to describe what these initiatives are and are doing rather than to indicate a research strategy on my part. In general, experimental research in political science is the same as in behavioral econ–researchers set up social experiments, but it is often in real-world situations rather than econ labs (I’ve seen ones that look at experimenting with voter turnout strategies for instance). I hope that clarifies some.

  5. Professor Hoffman, recently I found one of your articles in the book “The Handbook of Global Climate and Environment Policy”. I found this article very interesting because its analysis on climate change demystifies much of the discussion that can be found within the scientific literature, which often assumes irrefutable arguments, and as you well noted, despite advances in the understanding of climate change, this implies a problem when it comes to answering the question about what kind of problem is climate change and consequently how to approach it.

    Currently I began my PhD research on the politics of environmental risk management in Central America: the case of Costa Rica confronting climate change.

    I would like to inquire how initiatives of small states are interpreted in the range of the dynamic of Climate Change?

    Thank you very much for your attention.

    Kind regards,

  6. Hi Frank,
    Thanks for your comment and question, I’m glad you found the article to be of interest. There’s no easy answer to your question about small states. Some have played a large and innovative role in pushing for new thinking on the response to climate change (i.e. Ecuador’s proposal to not exploit its fossil fuel reserves in exchange for funding and Papua New Guinea’s partnership with Environmental Defense to push for REDD) and others have kept significant moral pressure on the negotiations (e.g. the small island nations). It certainly is an interesting area to pursue.
