The Taskforce on Conceptual Foundations of Earth System Governance is calling for papers for a panel at the ECPR General Conference, Université de Montréal 26 – 29 August 2015. 

Section: Environmental Politics

Panel title: Conceptual Foundations of Earth System Governance

Panel chairs: James Meadowcroft (Carleton) and Hayley Stevenson (Sheffield)

This panel will bring together papers exploring the key ideas that are framing debates around environmental governance during a period of global environmental change and earth system transformation. We anticipate papers focused on particular concepts (such as ‘planetary boundaries’, ‘environmental limits’, ‘the Anthropocene’, ‘resilience’, ‘the green economy’, etc.), as well as theoretical papers exploring the relationship between conceptual innovation and institutional innovation.
