Carnegie Report addresses the EU’s Geoeconomic and Regulatory Approach to Climate Policy

In a new contribution, Professor Goldthau argues that security threats not only lie in climate change but also in the ways the EU chooses to fight it

In a new contribution, Professor Goldthau argues that security threats not only lie in climate change but also in the ways the EU chooses to fight it. The EU therefore needs to consider the geoeconomical and political implications of its climate and energy strategies in order to facilitate a just transition to sustainability. The contribution is part of the Carnegie report titled “The EU and Climate Security: Toward Ecological Diplomacy”, edited by Richard Youngs and Olivia Lazard. The report calls for the EU to place ecological security and diplomacy at the heart of its foreign and security policy.
