What is the role of policy networks in European and North American climate change and energy action and politics? These networks may consist of a multitude of public, private, and civil society actors that can be both loosely connected and formally associated. They can operate across local, sub-national, national, regional, and international governance levels. The panel examines how major networks form and the multiple ways in which they engage and shape policy developments within and across jurisdictions. Further, the panel explores drivers of policy-making and different kinds of relationships between networks of policy leaders and more traditional actors including national governments and the European Union. Finally, the panel discusses key lessons from past and current efforts on networked governance. Panel Discussion takes place as part of Center for Study of Europe workshop on "Financial Stability and Energy Security." RSVPs strongly encouraged.
