Advancing Comparative Climate Change Politics: Theory & Methods / Mark Purdon. Global Environmental Politics, vol. 15, n° 3, 2015, 26 p. http://www.mitpressjournals.org/doi/pdf/10.1162/GLEP_e_00309

Abstract : Central to this paper is the notion that the methods and conceptual tools of comparative politics can improve our understanding of global climate change politics. Building on recent advancements in the field of comparative environmental politics as well as new research, the paper offers a comprehensive treatment of climate change politics in developed countries, emerging economies and least developed countries. In this paper, I distill the key features of comparative politics, advocate for the more rigorous application of comparative methods in climate politics scholarship and highlight three groups of political factors—institutions, interests and ideas—that hold considerable promise in explaining climate change politics at the domestic level. The paper concludes with an appeal to (re)think how international and domestic politics interact.
