The “Climate Change and International Security” conference will explore the ways in which climate change is redefining international security. How are the effects of climate change, particularly droughts, contributing to inter- and intrastate conflict? What are the effects of geopolitics on energy transitions? How should military and civilian leaders address these challenges? In a period of heightening great power competition, will international cooperation on addressing climate change realize global governance, or devolved spheres of influence?
This conference will bring together diverse scholars and practitioners to discuss ways of addressing the security risks stemming from climate change. Our panelists include policy analysts, current and former government officials, university professors with expertise in ecology, migration, conflict studies, military strategy, regional studies, energy, and multilateralism. Such a diverse array of subjects touches on issues relevant to international relations scholars as well as practitioners and analysts concerned with the future of American foreign policy-making. The conference is open to the public and will be live streamed.
The conference is hosted by Princeton University’s Center for International Security Studies (CISS). CISS provides the Princeton community a forum for the debate of national and international security issues. Through classes, lectures, simulations, staff rides, and research efforts, the Center seeks to generate new knowledge and educate the next generation of strategic thinkers and decision-makers. More information can be found at ciss.princeton.edu.
The conference is open to the public. Members of the audience are invited to the reception at the Prospect House on the 24th at 6PM. Breakfast and lunch will be provided in front of Lewis Library 120 on March 25th.
