The European Green Deal has paved the way to a ground-breaking EU agenda for climate neutrality and just transition, while at the same time triggering an extensive debate about how feasible, solid and coherent the new policy strategy is, and which factors are crucial for the whole legislative dossier to pass through the decision-making process successfully. The presented research investigates the European Commission’s role and leadership style in this process by conducting an in-depth analysis of the Commission’s political narrative and the power dimension therein.
