Stakeholders in coal exit debate stuck in established lines of reasoning
The stakeholders in Germany’s ongoing coal exit debate “still form coalitions with traditional allies and cling to established lines of reasoning,” according to a paper written by Anna Leipprand and Christian Flachsland, and published in Energy Research & Social Science. But the authors perceive “indications for a beginning disintegration of the status quo-defending coalition.” Core actors in the debate emphasise risks and threats, making it more difficult for those pushing for a regime change to offer a positive story, according to the article’s abstract.
