Professor Ian Gough delivers paper on ‘Climate change, double injustice and social policy’ at large international conference
Ian Gough, Research Fellow at LSE and Associate of the Grantham Research Institute, spoke at a plenary session of a large international conference held by the UN Institute for Social Development at the Palais des Nations in Geneva in October.
The conference, ‘Green Economy and Sustainable Development: bringing back the social dimension’, attracted over 400 participants from across the world.
Ian delivered a paper on ‘Climate change, double injustice and social policy’, which is shortly to be published as an UNRISD Occasional Paper. While there, he also participated in a small roundtable discussion on ‘Climate Change as a Social Development Issue’. This paper was written in tandem with the presentation Ian gave at a recent Grantham seminar on ‘Compensating for Climate Mitigation: can social policies ameliorate the regressive effects?‘
