Abstract

The aim of this chapter is to assess whether and to what extent the European Union can be considered a world leader in stimulating the development of international climate change standards through a variety of international organizations and processes as a way of spurring necessary international cooperation. It will argue that given slow progress towards an effective global response to the climate change challenge through multilateral cooperation, the EU has been trying to develop climate change standards internally or in cooperation with third countries, arguably in order to promote the acceptance of such standards by the competent international organizations, or at least
create a critical mass of countries engaging in climate action (minilateralism). The chapter will conclude by considering the legitimacy issues arising from this multi-faceted strategy of the EU in promoting international climate change standards.
