A Tale of Two Cities: Climate Policy in Münster and Dresden


Comparing the case studies of Münster and Dresden, Cindy Sturm looks at how divergent understandings of climate change in different discursive settings affect how decision makers approach the task of climate-related policymaking. She analyzes urban development documents, city council rulings, and interviews with decision makers and city administrators, in order to understand how certain perspectives on climate issues and decisions about the “right” urban development strategy become hegemonic, while others are sidelined.
