UNSW Australia and Paris Institute for Advanced Studies
In the lead up to the 2015 UN Paris COP21 Climate Conference the Institute of Advanced Studies, Paris will hold an interdisciplinary conference on 'Justice and Climate Transitions' organised in partnership with UNSW Australia.
The Justice and Climate Transitions conference is an official COP21 event and will bring together leading thinkers from philosophy, policy and the social sciences to examine the moral, social and political issues at stake in transition to a low carbon society. Panellists are invited to discuss how might we interpret and evaluate different transition pathways and low-carbon futures in terms of social justice. The aim is to present both philosophical and critical social scientific perspectives on these questions before bringing these into dialogue with each other.
The conference panels will be organised into two themes:
Climate transitions and moral and political philosophy
Climate, justice and low carbon transition. Social scientific and policy analyses.
