The Institute for European Integration is glad to publish the Discussion Papers of the visiting fellows Nataliya Stranadko and Nilyufar Abdulatova.
Nataliya Stranadko is a doctoral candidate in Public Affairs and Policy at the Mark O. Hatfield School of Government, Portland State University (Oregon, USA). Under the Fellowship Programm “Europe and Beyond”, her paper “EU-US Climate Cooperation: Challenges and Opportunities for the Implementation of the Paris Agreement” analyzes the role and importance of bilateral and transatlantic cooperation, as well as informal agreements between national and subnational actors in global climate Governance.
Nilyufar Abdulatova (LL.M) is a Lecturer in law at Westminster International University in Tashkent (WIUT). Her paper “Transparency in the extractive industries sector as a legal tool for strengthening Good Governance: the EU’s approach” was compiled in the course of her research stay at the Europa-Kolleg Hamburg, which was funded by the DAAD. It compares two well-known legal mechanisms for promoting Good Governance: The Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative and the EU Directives. Moreover, it discusses the importance of the principles of transparency as a tool for strengthening fiscal and non-fiscal accountability in the extractive industries sector.
