Event description

Description

This one-day workshop will bring together experts in the field of climate policy with the aim to:

  • Provide a critical discussion of the different assumptions, theories and methods of comparative climate policy research
  • Provide an opportunity for PhD students working on comparative climate politics projects to present their work in progress and receive feedback on the comparative design of their project
  • Draw together key insights for national and sub-national climate politics in Australia
  • Identify new research puzzles and gaps for new research projects relevant to Australia that could be the subject of future seed funding

The workshop is hosted by MSSI’s Climate Transformation Research Cluster, convened by Professor Robyn Eckersley and features as a special guest Professor Kathryn Harrison from the University of British Columbia, a leading international expert on comparative climate policy in federal systems.
