A Sea-Change for Climate Change? The Economic, Political, and Ethical Consequences of Global Warming

The widespread concern over the consequences of climate change has led to increasing engagement by both campaigning associations and policy-makers in tackling this issue. What is apparent is that - in addition to its material consequences - climate change is also likely to reshape the way we conceive the economic structure of our domestic and worldwide relations, our political institutions, and justice around the world.

After the successful event held last year on 'Can globalisation Make Poverty History?', this year's is the second event organised by CSGR - in conjunction with the World Development Movement - in which members of the academic community and of civil society organisations meet to discuss topical issues in an open, accessible, and critical way. The speakers will bring to the debate their perspectives from the economic, political, ethical, and historic angle.
