Climate Change and Conflict

POL 586/ENV 566

Info tab content
How will climate change influence cooperation and conflict within and among nation-states? Who are the winners and losers from climate change? These are among the central questions addressed in this course, and one of growing importance to academics and policymakers. Taking a social scientific approach emphasizing formal modeling and empirical analysis, we draw on most recent research and policy writing on climate change and conflict. We consider how climate change will influence the availability and cost of a range of natural resources and discuss and debate whether these changes are likely to lead to conflict or cooperation.
