With contributions from Margot Wallström, Minister of Foreign Affairs in Sweden and Miriam Dalli MEP (S&D Malta).

This timely collaboration contributes to the necessary debate over how the EU continues to lead on climate change following the adoption of the Paris Agreement.

Climate change is a transnational challenge like no other. The EU, which has been a key innovator in multi-level governance, now tackles the climate challenge while being beset by myriad interconnected crises. The EU’s capacity to innovate – and to act collectively – will be vital to meeting this urgent challenge in the years ahead.

Therefore we are pleased to introduce this joint publication of the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS), the Transnational Law Institute of The Dickson Poon School of King’s College London and Fondation Jean-Jaurès.0

It represents the culmination of a project which has engaged EU and Member State policymakers, United Nations officials, representatives of the progressive parties and organisations at European level and members of academia, the private sector and civil society to identify opportunities for EU external action to achieve ambitious, progressive climate outcomes. 

A publication of the project ‘Strengthening Europe’s sustainable energy and climate technology diplomacy: Harnessing networks for norm leadership’, a collaboration of FEPS, the Transnational Law Institute of The Dickson Poon School of Law, King’s College London and Fondation Jean-Jaurès in the framework of the Progressives for Climate Initiative. 

For further information about the publication contact Charlotte Billingham and Vassilis Ntousas from FEPS or Stephen Minas from TLI.
