Climate Ethics and Climate Economics: Discounting the future—what have we learned?
The last of in a series of six ESRC-funded workshops exploring the issues where the ethics and economics of climate change intersect will take place from 13-15 June at the University of Nottingham. The keynote speakers will be David Weisbach (University of Chicago) and Clark Wolf (Iowa State).
We have space in the workshop for eight additional presentations, and an equal number of discussants. Funds are available to cover accommodation and internal travel expenses for up to three research students and early-career researchers. Preference will be given to proposals on the workshop theme of discounting, but we will also consider proposals on other topics. Papers will be circulated before the workshop.
Those wishing to present a paper should submit a 500-word abstract by 10 May to both John O’Neill ( john.f.o’firstname.lastname@example.org) and Matthew Rendall ( email@example.com). Anyone interested in serving as a discussant or simply attending should send the organizers an expression of interest by the same date.
If applying for funding, please indicate that you are a student, or the year that you received the PhD.
