About the course

This course introduces you to the history and development of climate politics. It also offers the chance to study and discuss how climate change affects people's lives and livelihoods in a global perspective.

You will discuss and analyse the central actors and institutions in the global climate regime, such as the UN or EU, and explore crucial political agreements and difficulties. During the course, you will also look at keyissues such as migration, mobility, conflict and urbanization. With theoretical and conceptual tools, you will develop an understanding of climate justice and the intersectional nature of climate change resulting in unequal effects on different regions and different groups in society.

The University will compile and summarise the results of course evaluations.
