The Making of Climate Change Policy: Expertise, Interplay of Scales and Territorialization in the Case of France

Abstract : This working paper presents an ongoing research project that aims at better understanding the new forms of climate change governance in industrialized countries. In this regard, it addresses an emerging issue regarding the public policy of environmental protection: the making of climate plans. An interesting example of this is to be found in France, where the issue was recently debated through the Grenelle de l'environnement, an extensive consultation on sustainable development. Two intertwined questions arise from this experiment: How can actors translate global imperatives into national specificities and constraints, and what are the implications of the concomitant hybridization processes for local territories and their populations? To answer these questions, this article provides an overview of the main empirical fields to be explored, and proposes to combine the contributions of the political sociology of public action with those of science studies, particularly those emanating from the sociology of translation.
