Coping with emissions. Institutions, ideas, and strategies in policy coordination processes : air quality and climate change policies in Mexico City and Paris

Abstract : The thesis analyzes environmental policy coordination processes in cities. Based on acomparative case study of air quality and climate change policies in Mexico City and Paris, theresearch demonstrates that policy coordination in cities is a dynamic, sequential process whereactors from the four governance dimensions – urban, vertical, horizontal, and international –with different competences and perceptions on how their actions affect each other, interactstrategically under particular institutional configurations and cognitive references. The thesisdevelops a theoretical framework based on historical institutionalism, that addresses institutionsas changing, power distributional elements, and cognitive theories of public policy that explainthe organization of policy processes around ideational paradigms or frames of reference. Themain argument is divided into two parts. First, policy coordination results from the interplaybetween institutions that shape governance arrangements by distributing competences andestablishing frameworks for action, cognitive frameworks and ideational processes that definereferences, paradigms, and problems, and the strategic interactions taking place within. Thethree elements combine, leading to positive coordination, negative coordination, or conflict.Second, those arrays remain steady until changes in the institutional context, either abrupt orincremental, rearrange the interactions by altering the frameworks of action, leading to differentcoordination sequences. Hence, I argue that due to the changing nature of the institutionalcontext, coordination processes are sequential, rather than one-shot interactions.
