Gulf Hydrogen Horizons. Why are Gulf oil and gas producers so keen on hydrogen?

Natalie Koch
This paper examines the recent interest in hydrogen energy among political and economic leaders in the oil and gas producing states of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). Although key stakeholders continue to reinforce the fossil fuel systems that have defined the region’s political economy for decades, they increasingly recognize that the hydrocarbon era is drawing to a close. This has led to an increase in various “post-oil” energy investments, which most recently include hydrogen energy....

A macro-financial model of the Eurozone architecture embedded in the global offshore US-Dollar system

Steffen Murau
Monetary union has been a centerpiece of the European integration project. The design of the Eurozone 1.0 (1999-2009) subordinated national central banks to the supranational ECB but it neither introduced a supranational fiscal institution nor did it harmonize Eurozone banking systems. The historically unprecedented monetary reform was met with widespread skepticism from the start. The Eurocrisis (2009-12) seemed to prove critics right. Despite profound changes in the Eurozone 2.0 (since 2012), it is a commonplace...

Transformative Research. The IASS Approach

Simon Meisch
The Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS) explores the characteristics, barriers and drivers of promising sustainability transformations, seeks ethically justified concepts of sustainable development and designs and facilitates transformation processes. As such, it performs transfor-mation research and transformative research. It addresses both societal actors and the scientific community (Chapter 1). Subsequently, the conditions and challenges of the IASS's transformative research approach will be discussed. To begin with, the approach will be located in the broader...

Die globalen Auswirkungen eines CO2-Grenzausgleichs der EU

Silvia Weko, Laima Eicke, Adela Marian & Maria Apergi
Wenn die EU einen CO2-Grenzausgleich (Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism, CBAM) einführt, könnten Länder, denen die Ressourcen für die Dekarbonisierung fehlen, schwerwiegende wirtschaftliche Folgen zu spüren bekommen. Die EU sollte daher mögliche politische Risiken berücksichtigen und Stakeholder aus Drittstaaten in die Gestaltung des CBAM einbeziehen. Sie sollte mit den CBAM-Einnahmen die Dekarbonisierung in den von Risiken betroff enen Ländern fördern und die Emissionsberichterstattung mit bestehenden internationalen Vorgaben verknüpfen.

Towards Democratic Innovation in Israel: The Case for Citizens’ Assemblies

David Dunetz
The following paper posits not only that democracies can, but also that they must experiment and re-invigorate themselves to meet the challenges ahead. It presents the case for participatory innovative practices as an important pathway for democratic renewal and for bolder and more ambitious climate action in Israel. Specifically, we focus on one deliberative democratic format, the Citizens’ Assembly, that has gained in popularity around the world of late, especially around climate-related issues.
