SITE Energy Talk 2024 | Greening politics - Navigating environmental policy consistency amidst political change

The Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics (SITE) and the Forum for Research on Eastern Europe: Climate and Environment (FREECE) would like to invite you to its 2024 SITE Energy Talk. This edition will address the complexities of upholding environmental policies amidst a changing political landscape.

In the ongoing race against climate change adhering to our environmental commitments is as important as ever. At the same time, shifting global politics, with the changing nature of international relations and notable concerns over democratic backsliding, makes sustaining our environmental goals and commitments increasingly tough. This year's Energy Talk will focus on identifying risks political changes pose to our green ambitions and finding ways to credibly preserve environmental policies regardless of political developments.
