- In line with IAPSS’ Annual Theme 2019 – “Overcoming Injustice,” the Regional Conference in Stockholm invites you to debate injustice related to climate change.
- Climate Justice belongs to the most visible fields in the public sphere and constitutes one of the most pressing political challenges in the 21st century. From the 1960s on, the politics of climate justice have been unfolding with unprecedented scope, connecting more than any other field of research the local and global, and transcending traditional conceptions of responsibility and accountability. Studying climate justice helps deconstruct former narratives of mainstream theories and enhances multifarious analyses which include the role of gender, environment, class, caste, and sovereignty. Since the first UN Scientific Conference in Stockholm in 1972, climate change and its political consequences also constitute a matter of global governance, while politics in the Arctic give an example of how already existing economic and political dynamics will be shaped and transformed.
- With this conference theme, IAPSS hopes to encourage students and junior scholars of political science and related disciplines to participate and join this exciting academic discussion.
