Summary This book examines some of the political mechanisms at work in the formation and operation of international environmental regimes. What are the major factors that shape the national positions that governments bring to the negotiation table? How do the international institutions and negotiation processes through which these preferences and positions are adjusted and aggregated affect outcomes? Which are the main mechanisms determining whether or not international environmental agreements are successfully implemented at the domestic level?
