The project “Behind the Scenes: Mapping the Role of Treaty Secretariats in International Environmental Policy-Making” of the DFG-Research Unit “International Public Administration” is now affiliated with the Earth System Governance Project.

The Earth System Governance Project is the largest social science research network in the area of governance and global environmental change. Its international research program takes up the challenge of exploring political solutions and novel, more effective governance systems to cope with the current transitions in the biogeochemical systems of our planet. The normative context of its research is sustainable development: Earth system governance is not only seen as a question of governance effectiveness, but also as a challenge for political legitimacy and social justice.
