The Environmental Politics and Governance network ( has launched a new initiative, Deep Climate Conversations. This will be an online structured roundtable (i.e., questions circulated in advance to speakers) on a specific issue. The objective is to explore climate issues at a deeper, theoretical level.   

This will be a 75-minute event: 60 minutes for discussion of planned questions, leaving about 15 minutes for comments from the audience. We have scheduled it for March 1, 12:00-1:15pm EST.
Please register in advance here. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

The roundtable will focus on the following questions: 
  • What theoretical perspectives best help us to explain the character of advocacy on climate change? Where can existing theory be improved?
  • From your perspective, what kinds of advocacy are working? What kinds are not? Why?
  • How should we think about "success" in the realm of climate advocacy? What kinds of outcomes are most important for scholars to examine?
