Formation et développement des accords environnementaux internationaux : les effets de leadership

Abstract : This paper analyses the shaping of global environment agreements with two case studies: the negotiation of international air pollution and that of the ozone layer. It takes in account the positions of countries, influence exertion, the role played by science and institutions. Three main findings stem out. First, the definition of an agreement can result from the commitment of one country or a small coalition of countries. Second, in a local context of uncertainty, unilateral policy can be used as a binding means for other countries to cooperate. According to the countries interests, science may be used to legitimate participation or as a withdrawal argument. Third, the executive director of the organisation carrying the negotiations can play a decisive role to reach the consensus.
