Abstract
Climate governance is diversifying as the traditional multilateral approach is
complemented by more autonomous and experimental reactions. The aim of this thesis
is to enquire into this new kind of climate governance. Through a comparative case
study of two urban climate change experiments in Denmark, the thesis first explores
mechanisms that aid and hinder the achievement of experiment objectives, and second
examines how the experiments’ geographical context influences these mechanisms. The
case analyses suggest that both experiments are influenced in a very similar manner by
economic opportunity, political and technological embedded-ness and conflict, while
the experiments’ very different urban forms create dissimilar barriers... (More)
