Climate Change, Inequality and Social Policy
A new interdisciplinary seminar series starting in Autumn 2016

Three 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.  

 The 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 onThursday 3rd November 2016, 12.00-13.30 with Prof Ian Gough on ‘Climate change, Inequality and Social Policy’. Registration is required. Sign up for this seminar.
