The Politics of Climate Change Project is designed to encourage colleagues to systematically apply the theories and methods of political science to the task of identifying politically viable long-term state strategies for mitigating climate change that would be effective enough to prevent catastrophic climate change.
Planned activities include putting together an edited volume on current thinking relating to political strategies to combat climate change, organizing a panel at the ECPR conference in Pisa in 2007, applying to run a Workshop at the 2008 ECPR Joint Sessions in Rennes with the intention of putting together a second and more advanced edited volume, and applying for grants to fund meetings and research time from sources such as the EU and national research councils.
Further information on the Project is expected to be available shortly on the website of the ECPR Standing Group on Green Politics at http://www.greenpolitics-ecpr.org/.
