Participation(s) in Transnational Environmental Governance: Green Values Versus Instrumental Use
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Political Science.
Number of Authors: 12019 (English)In: Environmental Values, ISSN 0963-2719, E-ISSN 1752-7015, Vol. 28, no 1, p. 101-121Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

As crucial elements of green ideology, political participation and inclusiveness have become indispensable to democratic decision-making as green values gained ground across the world. It is often assumed that through the inclusion and participation of more stakeholders, the global environmental governance architecture has become increasingly democratic since the 1990s. This article asks whether civil society participation in the relevant United Nations platforms democratises transnational and global environmental governance, or simply simulates democratic participation without giving stakeholders the chance to contribute to policy decisions. First, building on Hannah Arendt's concept of political action I differentiate forms of participation based on different value systems. Then, following the historical development of participation narratives in the United Nations, I argue that participation has become increasingly instrumentalised and used to conceal other types of institutional change based on efficiency considerations and neoliberal values.
