Geden, Oliver; et al. (2018): Integrating carbon dioxide removal into EU climate policy. Prospects for a paradigm shift

Geden, Oliver; Scott, Vivian; Palmer, James (2018): Integrating carbon dioxide removal into EU climate policy. Prospects for a paradigm shift. In WIREs Clim Change 354 (1), e521. DOI: 10.1002/wcc.521.

"Here we explore the political dimensions and policy implications of expectations for “negative emissions” in the European Union (EU), considering its largely successful leadership role in mitigation action and corresponding low‐carbon technology development and deployment. Carbon dioxide removal and especially Bio‐Energy with Carbon Capture and Storage present significant challenges to the EU's dominant climate policy paradigm and low‐carbon policy experience. Considering this challenge, we assess expectations for widespread implementation of carbon dioxide removal in the EU to be unrealistic, and explore possible pathways for its more limited introduction."

Sargoni, Janine (2016): The Best of Both Worlds: Maximising the Legitimacy of the EU’s Regulation of Geoengineering Research

Sargoni, Janine (2016): The Best of Both Worlds: Maximising the Legitimacy of the EU’s Regulation of Geoengineering Research. In European Journal of Risk Regulation 7 (1), pp. 87–108.

"This paper suggests how the regulation of Solar Radiation Management (SRM) field research in Europe could be designed to maximise the possibility of securing legitimacy. It argues that legitimacy is maximised when regulatory frameworks are legal, and also responsive, flexible, deliberative and inclusive."

Gullberg, Anne Therese; Hovi, Jon (2016): Regulating Solar Radiation Management

Gullberg, Anne Therese; Hovi, Jon (2016): Regulating Solar Radiation Management. In European Journal of Risk Regulation 7 (1), pp. 75–86.

"We consider three such questions. First, can existing EU decision-making processes accommodate sufficient public engagement to ensure legitimate decisions on SRM? Second, does politics influence the choice of legislative procedure for SRM regulation? Third, does the choice of legislative procedure influence the likelihood of SRM implementation?"

Fleurke, Floor (2016): Future Prospects for Climate Engineering within the EU Legal Order

Fleurke, Floor (2016): Future Prospects for Climate Engineering within the EU Legal Order. In European Journal of Risk Regulation 7 (1), pp. 60–74.

"This article explores the prospects for the EU to develop a coherent policy regarding climate engineering (CE). To this end, we explore the most significant legal paramenters derived from EU law from which such a future EU policy would have to arise."

Reynolds, Jesse (2016): Opening Editorial. Special Issue on Regulating Climate Engineering in the European Union

Reynolds, Jesse (2016): Opening Editorial. Special Issue on Regulating Climate Engineering in the European Union. In European Journal of Risk Regulation 7 (1), pp. 58–59.

"Most attention ragarding the application of existing legal instruments, and the potential development of new ones, to regulate climate engineering has focused on the international area. International law will eventually be important, especially for the potential global implementation of solar radiation management."
