Peadar Kirby, University of Limerick 'Towards the low-carbon transition: Governance challenges'.

This paper argues that the goal of moving to a low-carbon society by 2015 which is fast becoming the goal of global public policy presents major challenges for governance systems, challenges which have been largely neglected both by political science and by the political system. The paper draws on some recent analyses of what these challenges entail and identifies some of the key challenges facing political science if it is to contribute to the socio-ecological transition.
