Keith Hyams and Morten Byskov have been awarded AHRC GCRF funding for their project ‘Inserting Ethics into Climate Adaptation and Resilience Policy’. The project will work with collaborators at the University of Cape Town and with Cape Town city’s climate adaptation department to look at how issues of ethics and justice can be incorporated into responses to climate-related risks. Cape Town has already come perilously close to a city-wide drought and regularly suffers from flooding: the project seeks to ensure that the most vulnerable communities such as informal settlements are incorporated in an ethical manner into city-level protection plans. In addition, Morten Byskov has been awarded a competitive Fellowship at Warwick’s Institute for Global Sustainable Development, which aims to bring researchers together from across Warwick to strengthen cross-departmental collaboration and research in the area of sustainability.

PAIS academic Gabriel Siles-Brügge recently addressed a session of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly's Economics and Security Committee taking place at the Assembly's 65th Annual Session in London on 12 October 2019. Addressing MPs from NATO countries, he spoke about the constraints facing the UK's 'Global Britain' agenda in trade policy, including: uncertainty over the future EU-UK trade relationship; domestic political contention and Executive-legislative tensions and an unfavourable international policy environment in the wake of increasing US unilateralism.
The Warwick Annual Debate on the Future of International Political Economy takes place on Wednesday March 13th at 5pm in S0.12.
This year's debate will challenge some of the common interpretations of Brexit, whilst offering up a wider range of ways in which we can better understand it, including through gender, post-colonial and new institutionalist lenses. By broadening our vision and placing Brexit within longer term political, cultural and economic contexts, the debate will shed light on Brexit as a process, and on what it means for the political economy of Britain and Europe.
We have, again, a great line-up of speakers: Professor Roberta Guerrina, University of Surrey; Professor Ben Rosamond, Copenhagen University; Dr Nadine El-Enany, Birkbeck University of London; and Dr Muireann O'Dwyer, University of Warwick. All welcome!
