Based on the interaction theory of international relations, this paper constructs the theoretical points:Firstly, from the perspective of constructivism, it is believed that international actors can reconstruct each other's interests and knowledge and shape the cooperative political culture by the interaction. Secondly, it learns from the results of Oran R.Young's research, which is that, actors enhance social welfare and achieve their own interests through the institutional interplay and competition, the key actors achieve its strategic goal in the institutional interplay active. Thirdly, it selects the viewpoint of the type of institutional interplay from Olav Schram Stokke, and extracts the two operational indexes of idea and norms at the operational level,The paper argues that institution, idea and norms is a kind of relations of mutual-construction. Norms is a product of the ideational interplay.intangible ideational interplay and normative interplay can form formal institute,and once the institute formed, it will not only affect the behavior of actors, but also affect the idea and recognition of human beings, change the specification, strengthen the existing system or change the old system, then turn into new round of interaction process. Institution is not static, but construct through the interplay. It is gradually accumulated and consummated in the interactive process of ideational interplay as unofficial constrained system and normative interplay as promoting mechanism. This Paper selects ideational element and normative element as its measure index in order to study the interplay system between the two actors of China and the European Union, and investigates the transition and differences and commons of ideational structure of China and the EU, the different idea mechanism of China and the European Union behaviors on climate change, the internalization degree of China from Europe's climate norms, which attempts to summarize the general features of institutional interplay, and predicts the post-Kyoto era of Sino-EU relations.The practical development of Sino-EU cooperation reflects The idealistic consensus between China and the EU, and it appears as a diplomatic paradigm of consensual multilateralism. Chinese traditional philosophy of "TianXia" implicit the concept of a humanistic concern for the world and tolerance, which is the ideal root of China positive responses to climate change and undertakes its international responsibility. The idea of EU strongly dominated the political climate is the heritage and development of the traditional universalism. Through analyzing the principle of "common but differentiated responsibilities",it proposed that the differences between principle idea and cognitive of interests can finally reach a consensus by the international interaction, divergence of concepts, cognitive and other principle system can also internalize. It can reflect the significance of international interaction:that is, idea can re-shape the principle system and the interests during the interaction.This article analyzes the two cases of BAU and CDM to show the features of china and the EU in the process of normative interplay. It believes that China is actively practice to be a responsible country and make an effort to maintain such a national identity. In the interaction with the European Union, we know well with the international normative system and actively participate in the normative model.But at the same time, China's decision makers can accurately locate the core interests of China and do "selective internalization" of the international norms, and make good use of international discourse to preserve these core interests, which indicate that China is gradually mature in the international interaction.Through the analyzing of these cases, the paper attempts to propose a process mode of institutional interplay。It analyzes the Possible features of climate game between China and EU in the post-Kyoto era.
