Climate Ethics and Economics Workshop
Call for Abstracts
Deadline: December 1st
This is a call for extended abstracts (500-1000 words) of papers that will be suitable for 30-minute presentations.
This workshop will be a chance to discuss new work in climate ethics and economics, and especially their intersection. The workshop will be held at Goethe-University in Frankfurt, Germany on March 3rd and 4th, 2016. A parallel workshop will be held at Duke University on the same days, which we plan to link with via videoconferencing for a section of the workshop. Those closer to Durham should submit their blinded abstracts to the Duke workshop using this link.
A non-exhaustive list of potential topics follows:
– The ethical aspects of discounting future costs and benefits, including declining discount rates.
– Valuation of non-human nature, the continued existence of human civilization, or futures containing very different amounts of people in the context of climate change economics
– The relationship of, and compatibility between, non-consequentialist ethical approaches and economic analyses of climate change.
– The appropriate role of integrated assessment models (IAMs) and economic analysis generally in setting climate change policy.
Please submit blinded abstracts to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 1st. When submitting, please be aware we aim to have pre-circulation of papers by February 15th.
