Sascha Müller-Kraenner; FES Shanghai, April 2012

In the light of the upcoming Rio+20 Summit in June 2012, "Reform of Global Sustainable Development Institutions", written by Sascha Müller-Kraenner, explores the prospects of institutional reform in the face of an outdated framework of global environmental governance.
