Games of influence in climate change negotiations: Modelling interactions

Pierre Courtois and Tarik Tazdaït

Ecological Modelling, 2007, vol. 204, issue 3, 301-314

Abstract: We present an integrated framework for structuring and evaluating dynamic climate change decision-making taking into account influential processes occurring during negotiation rounds. Imitation, persuasion and dissuasion are considered. To represent negotiation outcomes, we define a stochastic model derived from concepts of thermodynamics. We use the master equation to describe games of influence. We illustrate the model by simulating the formation and the evolution of a cooperative coalition in the course of a negotiation round. We derive conditions for the emergence and the enlargement of a cooperative agreement.
