< Appendix CTable of ContentsNotes >

The semi-structured interview with Professor Jørgen Delman was conducted according to the following interview-guide:

Introduction to the interview
Short presentation:
- Master’s student at the Department for Political Science, University of Copenhagen.
- The motivation for conducting the interview is a distinct lack of primary data in terms of Chinese intra-state dynamics in general and in particular in regards to China’s climate policy-making.
- The successful utilisation of Model B hinges centrally on the availability of data – preferably primary data
- Analytical focus is to explain why China’s climate policy has undergone a proactive/ambitious shift in recent years.
- The analysis utilises two interrelated yet distinct theoretical frameworks

China’s climate policy
- The political prioritisation of climate change vis-a-vis other national policy issues
- How can climate change be distinguished from other policy issues (especially energy policy)
- China’s future climate policy? Status quo or more proactive?

China’s climate policy-making
- Formal institutional setup
o Which government policy actors are involved in China’s climate policy-making process
o Which of these policy actors are the most significant in terms of influence?
o What are the respective interests of the policy actors involved? Deviation from national interests?
o What determines the interests of policy actors?
o Are some interests favoured over others in the course of the Chinese climate policy-making process?
o Who has the final word in the formulation of China’s climate policy?
o ”Fragmented authoritarianism”: to what extent does overlapping structures of authority matter in the formulation of China’s climate policy?
o Do governmental policy actors base their policy stances on considerations over the prospect of difficulties when implementing policies?
o To what extent do policy actors located at lower administrative levels matter? What role do local policy actors play in the formulation of China’s climate policy?

- Societal interests (informal policy actors)
o Which groups of Chinese society are most affected by shifts in China’s climate policy?
o Which groups are most affected by proactive/ambitious shifts in China’s climate policy?
o To what extent do societal policy actors have decision-making power?
o How influential are business interests vis-a-vis ENGOs200?
o The decision-making power of NOCs201?
