Gender and Transition in Climate Governance

Abstract
This article demonstrates how gender is implicated in climate governance through insights derived from gender and transition studies in combination, applied and illustrated through a study of climate governance in Sweden. The approach is constructive and uses central analytical concepts: transition arenas, niches, regimes and landscapes together with insights from gender research. The article proposes that the two fields are linked through three arguments on what is necessary to make a transition: to strengthen participation, to deal with oppressive power relations and to challenge institutionalized norms. It illustrates how masculine norms seem to permeate the landscape of climate transitions and argues that gender regimes tend to dictate... (More)
This article demonstrates how gender is implicated in climate governance through insights derived from gender and transition studies in combination, applied and illustrated through a study of climate governance in Sweden. The approach is constructive and uses central analytical concepts: transition arenas, niches, regimes and landscapes together with insights from gender research. The article proposes that the two fields are linked through three arguments on what is necessary to make a transition: to strengthen participation, to deal with oppressive power relations and to challenge institutionalized norms. It illustrates how masculine norms seem to permeate the landscape of climate transitions and argues that gender regimes tend to dictate planning, measures and implementation. Finally, it suggests that a gender perspective on climate governance goes beyond participation in transition arenas and niches to consider how gender is articulated in policies for climate transitions.
