International Cooperation and Climate Change (Philosophy@LSE Panel Discussion)

23 June 2015, 6:30 pm8:00 pm

This event is jointly organised with the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, LSE

In the wake of the fifth IPCC Report, we know that tackling climate change is crucial for human well-being. So why has the international community been faltering on effective climate action? What prospects are there for improvement at the forthcoming Paris conference? And how should we frame responsibilities and opportunities so as to break through the collective-action impasse? This panel discussion will draw on expertise from philosophy, political science and climate policy.
