Transcalar politics of climate change


This course adopts a 'global' perspective on the politics of climate change (CC), albeit with a distinctive transcalar dimension – i.e. a framework for analysis across different levels of the same scale and across different scales. Climate change is such a complex physical, social and political phenomenon, affecting almost all domains of human activity and all societies on earth, that it cannot be understood only through the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) negotiations, however important. Therefore, if this teaching builds on the sub-discipline of IR, it borrows also from to other traditions in political science and other social sciences.
