The 2020 Strategy Experience: Lessons for Regional Cooperation, EU Governance and Investment
“The 2020 Strategy Experience: Lessons for Regional Cooperation, EU Governance and Investment” – contribution to a Special Issue of the Climate Policy journal
Call for papers deadline : 15 March (abstracts)
With the agreement on the 2030 energy and climate targets there is a clear need to speed up the process of decarbonization of the European economy. But there are still numerous issues that need to be clarified. How can the EU member states achieve their renewable energy and climate targets in efficient ways? What governance mechanisms can improve regional cooperation and coordination? How can increased investment levels be triggered? Can the experience of the 2020 Strategy provide valuable lessons for EU energy governance until 2030 and beyond?
In light of this, DIW Berlin, the Hertie School of Governance, Climate Strategies and the European Commission’s office in Berlin would like to invite you to submit academic papers on topics that address the questions above.
Selected papers will later be published in a Special Issue of the Climate Policy journal. Authors will also be invited to present their papers as part of a conference that will be held in Berlin on the 17th and 18th June, 2015.
This call for papers seeks to explore and focus on three main themes:
- cross-border and domestic infrastructure development
- regional cooperation and coordination, and
- renewable energy expansion and policy diffusion.
You are invited to submit your abstracts (no more than 300-500 words) by the 15th March 2015, by emailing Olga Zhylenko (OZhylenko@diw.de ).
