2010 Marie Curie Training Course Architectures for Earth System Governance: The Distributional Implications of Environmental Change and Governance

Germany
Berlin
Event start: 20101004
End date: 20101013

Event description

This training course addresses the implications of environmental change for equity in earth system governance. To this end, the summer school links the work of scholars on ‘global governance architecture’ to debates on the distributional effects of environmental governance and change. Particular attention will be paid to the question to what extent the shift from government to governance improves the capacity of the existing global governance architecture in ensuring a fair and equitable distribution of costs and benefits of environmental change across societies.

The series of courses jointly organised with the Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM), Amsterdam, aims to train and educate Ph.D. students and young researchers in the latest theoretical developments, empirical studies and practical implications in the field. Each participant is invited to present her/his research results. By stimulating academic discussions and interpersonal exchanges, the training course aims at establishing a network of young researchers and developing a research agenda for the future.

The training course will be held back to back with the 2010 Berlin Conference on Human Dimensions of Global Environmental Change, which is held on the topic, ‘Social Dimensions of Environmental Change and Governance’.
