From Conflictual to Coordinated Interlegality: The Green New Deals Within the Global Climate Change Regime


by Gürkan Çapar

Climate change is one of the most wicked problems we have to deal with in the 21st century. No need to say, it is a problem of politics. The paper will first outline, taking a historical perspective, the institutional developments global climate change governance has been experiencing within the last two decades, with a particular focus on the contrast between Kyoto Protocol (KP) and Paris Agreement (PA) and their distinctive mode of governance. It is going to argue that the PA created an atmosphere not only for the flourishing of transnational and national actors but also for the popping up the Green New Deals all across the world.
The conflictual relationship between different national legal orders is likely to turn to a more coordinated one thanks to the fertile mode of governance established with the PA. In its final part, the article will analyze this turn to cooperative relationship, upon having shown the deficiencies of GAL and mere political approaches, through the lenses of inter- legality.
