Working Group on Climate Change Workshop [SSRCdemocracy]:

On November 10-12, the Anxieties of Democracy program’s Working Group on Climate Change held its first workshop at Princeton University, generously sponsored by the Climate Futures Initiative and the Princeton Environmental Institute.

The aim of the workshop was to rethink received wisdom on the relation of science to democratic deliberation, and to test our Working Group members’ initial propositions on—and refine their contributions to an understanding of the links between—social movements in the United States and elsewhere, and the analysis of international, transnational, and domestic institutions.

The workshop, like the Working Group, was co-chaired by Robert O. Keohane, Professor of International Affairs at Princeton University, and Nancy L. Rosenblum, Senator Joseph Clark Professor Emerita of Ethics in Politics and Government at Harvard University.

Workshop participants authored and examined papers on the following themes:
