Climate Governance in the Chinese Century

Climate Governance in the Chinese Century
Thursday 29 April 2021

Peter Drahos, Professor of Law and Governance at the European University Institute, has published the monograph ‘Survival Governance: Energy and Climate in the Chinese Century’ with Oxford University Press.

The monograph explains how China can lead a systemic change to address the climate and energy crisis. Only key sovereign entities, such as China, the US, the EU and India, can trigger a paradigm shift to a cheap and clean bio-digital energy economy. Like the US, which is still a fossil fuel export superpower, and the EU, whose progress is hampered by complex internal decision-making processes, China faces hurdles, but it is making its vast urban network sustainable on a historically unprecedented scale.
