Climate Change and Global Governance Away Day - Tuesday 20 May, 10:00 -15:30 pm, R1.13 Ramphal Building

Leads: Dr Celine Tan, Dr Malcolm MacDonald and Dr Sam Adelman
This Away Day, building on a roundtable that we held in term 2, will explore aspects of global governance relating to climate change. It aims to bring together researchers from across different disciplines at Warwick to explore issues around climate change and responses to such events from a governance and international perspective. In particular, it will aim to bring together participants and identify resources that might lead to the formation of an interdisciplinary research network in climate change and global governance.

Global Governance GRP roundtables are informal conversations aimed at introducing Warwick colleagues working on global governance themes to each other in order to foster greater interdisciplinary collaboration. The theme of this roundtable was Climate Change. Speakers informally shared different disciplinary perspectives on issues relating to climate change and global governance. This led to exploratory debate and discussion amongst participants. The speakers at the event were: Professor Brian Thomas (Life Sciences); Dr Sam Adelman (Law); Dr Edward Page (PAIS).
