"Framework Convention on Climate Change: The First Conference of the Parties," S. Oberthür, H. Ott (Wuppertal Inst., Döppersburg 19, D-42103 Wuppertal, Ger.), Environ. Policy & Law, 25 (4-5), 144 ff., 1995.

An extensive analysis of the developments on the convention from Rio to Berlin, the outcomes of the Berlin meeting, and the constraints and opportunities for the Third Conference of Parties in Kyoto/Tokyo. Takes a mildly positive view of the decisions made, especially because further negotiations were relegated to an ad hoc working group operating on a tight schedule. Analyzes possible winning coalitions, the advantages of a binding target approach, and some options for the upcoming negotiations. (Similar material is published by the authors as "Stand und Perspektiven der internationalen Klimapolitik," Intl. Politik und Gesellschaft (Intl. Politics and Society), No. 4, 1995.)
