This chapter briefly reviews the history of the international climate change negotiations leading up to and culminating in the drafting of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and, subsequently, the Kyoto Protocol. The discussion examines the role of the US and the EU in the negotiating process; focusing on how the US and the EU influenced the substantive content of the Kyoto Protocol. It then explores the importance of the EU and the US as political actors in global climate politics, as past and present contributors to anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, and as symbolic and substantive ‘role models’ in the international climate regime.

Keywords:   UNFCCC, Kyoto Protocol, European Union, United States, policymaking, negotiation
