Global Climate Action: Bridging Theory and Practice

This event launches the recently published “Political theory and global climate action: recasting the public sphere” by Idil Boran and discusses the role of nonstate and subnational actors in climate action at the interface of research and practice. It is the first in a series of events hosted by the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) in and around the Bonn Climate Change Conference (SB 50) in June 2019.

This event launches the recently published “Political theory and global climate action: recasting the public sphere” by Idil Boran and discusses the role of nonstate and subnational actors in climate action at the interface of research and practice. It is the first in a series of events hosted by the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) in and around the Bonn Climate Change Conference (SB 50) in June 2019.

The author’s presentation will be followed by a critical appraisal and various perspectives from research and practice. The focus of the debate will be on sharing experiences for accelerating progress through strengthening actions of non-state and subnational actors as well as broadening participation, strengthening climate actions in the global South, and maximizing synergies of climate action beyond 2020.

About the book:

From around the world, cities and regions, civil society networks and businesses, nongovernmental organizations and institutions for research and learning, and many others, are taking action on climate change. Political Theory and Global Climate Action launches an exploration sensitive to changing patterns of practice, focused on diversity of actors, driven to explore historically contingent conditions of possibility, and responsive to questions of equity and justice in the context of transformations. The result is a repositioning of political thought on climate change, engaging political theorists, scholars of politics and governance, and drivers of climate action worldwide at nonstate and substate levels interested in the social and political meaning of their engagement.

About the author:

Idil Boran is Associate Professor specializing in Political Theory and Public Policy in the Department of Philosophy, York University (Toronto) and Associate Researcher at the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE)
