Lost in the nexus?: The integration-fragmentation of global climate governance in 2015-2045

‘Nexification’ is understood as a tendency to seek connections. Goldberg witnesses that in 2015-2045, the more connected things became, the less responsible key-actors in the realm of climate change felt to change. Based on actual interviews with international civil servants and secondary literature, this study describes the intensified nexification of global climate governance in 2015-50.

Matti Goldberg presents his work on day 2 of T2051MCC. On this day it is assumed that global heating has remained below 1.5°C.
