Event description

Description

The politics around governing global climate change are complex enough at the best of times. Now, a surge of populism, ‘fake news’, and the election of Donald Trump as US President, all in times of ongoing austerity in Western democracies, add even greater challenges to the picture. In this research workshop, we will explore what these ‘interesting times’ mean for the prospects, barriers, and new opportunities of climate governance. The event brings together academics, researchers, activists and policy-makers with expertise in climate politics, to explore any or all of the following questions:

  • How has the transnational climate governance arena evolved since Paris 2015?
  • What new barriers have arisen as a result of austerity, populism, Brexit and Trump?
  • How might they be addressed?
  • What are the prospects for international climate politics without US involvement in the Paris Agreement?
  • Does the changed context create any new opportunities as well?
  • What are the (new?) roles of scientists / experts / activists / citizens in today’s climate politics?

The programme for the day is available here.
