Student: Natalia Zheltonogova

Supervisor: Anastasia Likhacheva

Faculty: Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs

Educational Programme: International Relations: European and Asian Studies (Master)

Year of Graduation: 2020

European climate leadership is currently affected by three main challenges: low level of coherence between member states, the transformation of US climate policy and the increasing involvement of China in the international climate regime. In the framework of the concept of normative power, the author analyzes the impact of these challenges on the EU's ability to achieve expected results in international negotiations and on its commitment to its normative approach. As a result of applying the method of focused structured comparison, the author concludes that despite the destabilizing influence of challenges, the EU maintains its leadership position.
