Abstract:

Abstract: Over the past 30 years, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have established themselves as an important actor group in international environmental governance. This paper compares the US and EU approaches to integrating non-state actors and civil society into global governance by examining: (1) how these actors have been included in the decision-making process (such as through participation in official country delegations at UN meetings, ability to communicate their positions and ideas at negotiating sessions) and (2) how these actors have been included in the implementation (such as through being assigned specific roles in carrying out the recommendations in agreements). The paper analyzes the effects of these NGO participation strategies for groups of countries in the South. The surge of NGOs in developing countries in the 1990s was a response to signals from funders in the North. How has this affected the political environments in Southern countries and what ability have Southern NGOs had to affect global environmental decision-making?

ISA 2004. (Linked Panels) PANEL TITLE: Divergent Environmental Policy Styles Across the Atlantic: Implications for Theory and Practice (PANEL TITLE II: Agriculture Trade and the Environment in EU-US Relations: Implications for Theory and Practice) This is the first of two panels examining environmental chemical and agriculture policy across the Atlantic from the perspectives of theory and practice. Both panels are motivated by an interest in understanding the reasons behind what some scholars have identified as a trans-Atlantic divide in
specific roles in carrying out the recommendations in agreements). The paper analyzes the effects of these NGO participation strategies for groups of countries in the South. The surge of NGOs in developing countries in the 1990s was a response to signals from funders in the North. How has this affected the political environments in Southern countries and what ability have Southern NGOs had to affect global environmental decision-making?
