How nations can cooperate to meet the climate-change challenge? Seminar with John Roemer
Wednesday, 12 December 2018 · 09:00h - 12:00h
Climate change questions us as a society and calls into question human behavior in the face of a new perspective based on ethical criteria of sustainability and equality. Today, the magnitude of the problem requires states to cooperate to control greenhouse gas emissions, with the idea of distributing permitted emissions among the various regions so that the relative growth factors can be maintained in each State. The commitment to equality and sustainability requires a rethinking of the objectives of economic growth, both in developed countries and in developing countries. An economic challenge, but also a political one on a world scale.
The speaker at the seminar will be John Roemer, Ph.D. in economics from the University of Berkeley, Professor of Political Science and Economics at Yale University. His research focuses on political economy and distributive justice.
Chair: Humberto Llavador, professor of economics at Pompeu Fabra University. Llavador and Roemer have worked together on a model for calculating globally acceptable emissions.
The language of the seminar will be English.
