Climate Change, Inequality and Social Policy
A new interdisciplinary seminar series starting in Autumn 2016
institutes in LSE are hosting a new seminar series: the Grantham
Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment (GRI),
the Centre for the Analysis of Social Exclusion (CASE) and the new
International Inequalities Institute (III). It will be chaired
by Prof Ian Gough, Visiting Professor at CASE and Associate at Grantham.
The overlap between
environmental pressures and degradation on the one hand and the ‘social
dimension’ of inequality and human wellbeing on the other hand is of immense
importance but under-researched. There is a yawning gap to be filled by a
coherent, exciting and interdisciplinary research agenda. This series of
seminars will explore and develop that agenda.
seminars will be focused in two ways: on global warming and climate change
rather than a wider range of environmental problems, and on the UK and other
rich countries - the ‘welfare states’ of the OECD, roughly the same as and the
Kyoto Annex II countries.
The first six seminars of the
series will take place
November 2016, 12.00-13.30 with
Gough on ‘Climate change, Inequality and
Social Policy’. Registration is required.
Sign up for this seminar.
