Abstract

Do institutions and procedures matter in environmental governance? Do new forms of governance foster more environmentally sustainable solutions? These are some of the issues that Jens Newig is investigating with his research group on Governance, Participation and Sustainability at Leuphana University of Lüneburg, Germany.  This presentation shows first results from a European Research Council grant project that is using the case survey method to integrate qualitative insights of 250+ published cases studies on environmental decision-making from North America and Europe.
