Workshop to Assess Outcome of COP21 Climate Talks

The Global Governance GRP is holding an initial meeting on Monday 7 March 2016 to assess the outcome of the Paris COP21 Climate Talks. To focus discussion we have a number of speakers who will talk about various areas associated with the summit and its outcomes. These topics are aimed at stimulating wider discussion and bringing together those who may be interested in developing a research or educational agenda in the area.

We recognise the workshop is during term time, so please indicate on the form below if you wish to attend one, two or three of the sessions. For session details see our workshop programme.
