We bring together academics, policymakers, practitioners, and civil society activists engaged in climate justice issues.
Climate change intervenes in a deeply unequal world and further exacerbates longstanding socioeconomic inequalities, thereby creating myriad injustices. Rising inequalities make the discipline of political science crucial for developing solutions to contemporary global challenges, including climate change. Climate Justice Network aims to catalyze emerging cross-regional, multidisciplinary, and inclusive collaborations between political scientists in the United States and social scientists, policymakers, municipal officials, and activists from the Global South.
We are a network of academics, policymakers, practitioners, and civil society activists engaged in climate justice issues. While the main focus of work is on the rapidly urbanizing regions in the global South, our work is informed by comparative analyses that cut across the global North-South divides. The network and its activities are supported by a 2018 Special Projects Fund award from the American Political Science Association (APSA).
