张中祥教授附言

Jonathan Wiener是老朋友了。2003年他与他在哈佛法学院读书时哈佛法学院副院长Richard Stewart教授(现任纽约大学法学院大学教授 (University Professor))合著的著作Reconstructing Climate Policy由美国企业研究所(AEI)出版社出版。借新书出版发行之际,2003年5月12日他在杜克大学富卡商学院组织了重构气候变化政策国际会议(International Conference on Reconstructing Climate Policy: Moving Beyond the Kyoto Impasse)。

当时自己任职美国国会唯一建立和资助的公共外交智库东西方中心,应邀参加了会议,并在美国政治科学学会理事长Robert Keohane教授主持的单元做了题为Reconstructing Climate Policy: How Best to Engage China and Other Major Emitting Countries?的报告。美国环境保护署副署长Richard Morgenstern博士作为评论人对自己的报告做了精彩点评。自己发言的一部分内容2004年应邀刊登在美国国家科学院和工程院主办的综合性刊物Issues in Science and Technology(SSCI和SCI双检索刊物)卷20上。那天晚上在他家里聚餐,与他和其他一些老朋友聊的非常愉快。

近几年,经常与他在巴黎一起参加法国Climate Economics Chair研究平台科学委员会会议和其他活动。他也常来中国,前几次来中国碰巧自己不在天津。这次,很高兴他提前告知并特别挤出时间专程访问我们马寅初经济学院并做报告。期待来访并做精彩报告!

在上面提到的那部著作中(Richard Stewart and Jonathan Wiener (2003), Reconstructing Climate Policy: Beyond Kyoto, The AEI Press, Washington DC),他们七次引用了自己任职荷兰格罗宁根大学法学院和经济学院时发表的下面4篇文章:

之后,自己主动转换跑道,到美国国会建立与资助的唯一公共外交智库东西方中心任职资深研究员10多年,直至放弃经猎头公司负责全球招聘、经过总统府面试后获得担任位于经济合作与发展组织(OECD)国家首都某大型国际政府间机构Director of Research的高级职务携全家全职回国。
