lecciones desde los mercados de carbono

Palabras clave:

Gobernanza climática, Mercados de Carbono, Hegemonía, Consentimiento, Política Económica Internacional


En las últimas décadas, las relaciones internacionales se han visto fuertemente guiadas por la Política Económica Internacional (PEI). El presente artículo pretende ilustrar la influencia que han tenido ésta en la gobernanza global. Utilizando a los mercados de carbono y su influencia en la gobernanza global climática, el artículo ejemplifica el dominio del enfoque de PEI en la política internacional. El artículo pretende mostrar cómo es que la gobernanza climática esta fuertemente influenciada por un enfoque de PEI. A través de un breve repaso de los mercados de carbono, el artículo pretende mostrar cómo la gobernanza global climática esta fuertemente influenciada por la PEI. Empleando la noción de hegemonía de Antonio Gramsci, el artículo aspira contribuir a un mejor entendimiento de cómo es que las políticas climáticas siguen una lógica económica.
