This thesis explores the circumstances under which issue linkage can be applied to achieve cooperation on international environmental problems in general and on environmental problems in the European Union in particular. A major topic in this thesis is the development and analysis of cooperative and non-cooperative game theoretical methods of issue linkage that include imperfectly reversed interests. The relevance of the models is shown in the context of EU environmental decision making.
