INTERNATIONAL POLITICS OF CLIMATE CHANGE

POL3IPC

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Climate change politics encompasses a web of complex and inter-related transnational processes that impact on all aspects of global affairs. Over the course of our POL3IPC journey, we will examine international climate politics across numerous different IR policy domains: the greenhouse effect and the global carbon budget; the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Paris Agreement; climate economics and the post-carbon transition; climate vulnerability, adaptation and resilience; the securitisation of climate change; the ethics and governance of geoengineering; climate-driven population displacement and challenges for state sovereignty; global climate justice; First Nations Peoples and Earth-based governance models; and the global climate movement. As we explore these topics, you will be prompted to locate yourself within the web of multi-level relationships that constitute international climate politics, and to strategise how you might exercise some political agency at different levels of political scale.
