Energy and Climate Change Policy: Politics at Multiple Scales
Cabot Institute Seminar Series
Energy and climate change policy and regulation cannot be based on science alone. Both policy areas address problems that are defined by complex interactions between people and the environment that are mediated by inherently political social processes. They also deal with future uncertainties. In turn, their solutions incorporated into policy instruments contain within themselves highly political choices made by both scientists and policy-makers. This seminar series brings together research that illuminates both the politics of the process through which those choices have been taken and the effects of those policies.
