"GLOBAL POLITICS IN THE ERA OF CLIMATE CHANGE"

April 3, 2020

 

The Rutgers University Division of Global Affairs (DGA), and its student organization, Student Association of Global Affairs (SAGA), will host the 2020 Global Affairs Conference on April 3, 2020 at Rutgers University - Newark. With its annual conference, SAGA seeks to provide a space of critical inquiry for graduate students and early career faculty. This year’s conference theme, “Global Politics in the Era of Climate Change,” aims to examine various aspects of global climate politics including the role of international agreements, civil society movements, indigenous communities, and state actors in addressing what can be argued is the existential trans-global challenge of our time.

  • Climate change and insecurity (e.g., food, water, land, health policy, etc.)
  • Social movements / activism (e.g. within countries and cross-border movements)
  • Indigenous communities and climate change adaptation / resilience (e.g. within countries and communities across borders)
  • Intergovernmental organizations and climate politics
  • Sustainable energy (e.g. carbon markets, solar, wind, etc.)
