The Dismal Shape of Things to Come?
Evaluating Climate Economics as a Guide to Democratic Decision-making
Venue: Gamla Biskopshuset, Biskopsgatan 1, 223 62 Lund
Aim of Workshop: The main goal of our workshop is to bring together various perspectives that can contribute to a critical reflection of climate economics in its role in advising policy. Our primary motivation here is the following: While various scholarly traditions and research programs have much to contribute to this topic, the respective debates proceed largely independently of each other. Hence, we would like to create a forum that facilitates exchange between these various pieces of literature (for more details see here).
