(p.1) Chapter 1 Explaining the Design of Global Environmental Regimes
Regulating the Polluters

Alexander Ovodenko

Oxford University Press

This initial chapter presents the main puzzle motivating the book by describing the transition under way in the climate change regime from a top-down model to a bottom-up model of global governance. It describes the different forms of global governance that countries have developed to address a range of transboundary environmental problems, specifying the empirical questions that later chapters answer. It then develops a markets theory, drawing from economics and political science, to explain the institutional design of international environmental regimes. After elaborating the markets theory, the chapter then details the research design of the book by describing the analytical function of each chapter and how the chapters fit together more generally.

Keywords:   regime, oligopoly, institutional design, global governance, environment, market
