SEMINAR SERIES: Paris and Beyond - Pragmatic Climate Policy

Hilary Term weeks 1-8 | Wednesdays 5-6:30pm | Beckit Room | OUCE | South Parks Rd | Oxford | Ox1 3QY

 

Following the agreement between Presidents Obama and Xi Jinping on carbon caps, the focus of climate change negotiations is focussed on the Paris Conference of the Parties in December 2015. This seminar series looks at the big issues at Paris, the chances of success, the possible shape of an agreement, whether it will have much impact, what the alternative approaches are, and what lies beyond in technology and climate change policy.
