About the Authors
  • The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has become a hugely influential institution. It is the authoritative voice on the science on climate change, and an exemplar of an intergovernmental science-policy interface. This book introduces the IPCC as an institution, covering its origins, history, processes, participants, products, and influence. Discussing its internal workings and operating principles, it shows how IPCC assessments are produced and how consensus is reached between scientific and policy experts from different institutions, countries, and social groups. A variety of practices and discourses – epistemic, diplomatic, procedural, communicative – that make the institution function are critically assessed, allowing the reader to learn from its successes and failures. This volume is the go-to reference for researchers studying or active within the IPCC, as well as invaluable for students concerned with global environmental problems and climate governance. This title is also available as Open Access via Cambridge Core.

    • Provides insights from different perspectives into the inner workings of the IPCC exploring what it is and how it works
    • Analyses IPCC practices using key concepts in science, and technology studies, and political science, showing how they are tightly embedded into the work of the IPCC
    • Critically assesses the achievements of the IPCC and highlights the challenges it faces in order to remain credible and legitimate to a range of political actors
    • This title is also available as Open Access via Cambridge Core
