    • The political feasibility of potent enforcement in a post-Kyoto climate agreement 

      Aakre, Stine (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      To be effective, a post-Kyoto climate agreement must secure significant greenhouse gas emissions reductions by all (key) emitters. Potent participation and compliance enforcement will be required to make it in every key ...
