De, Branco Aurilian, a post-graduate student, Faculty of IR, MGIMO

Key words: game theory, fossil energy, economic behavior, the shadow of the future, environment, climate changes , global governance

Realism, liberalism, constructivism, marxism or any other theory of international relations are paradigms to make sense of the world and provide a reference framework for future and past occurrences but much like different house rules applied to the same game can give a myriad of different solutions and results depending on who you ask. This article therefore tries to focus on the actual rules of the game. As many theories rely on game theory to prove their point of view, realists for example that defection is the default position and liberalists stating that cooperation is most optimum for game players. This does not leave us with a satisfying answer to what climate change will mean for international relations in the near and further future. To answer that question, we will examine game theory and international relations in more detail notably the shadow of the future.
