End of History: Climate change, security, and political inaction

April 26 @ 5:00 pm - 5:50 pm

Climate change is increasingly recognized as one of, if not the, paramount challenging confronting humanity. Despite this reality, policy action in the United States and globally has been inadequate. This lecture explores the problem from the standpoint of political logics. Using a sense making approach, the lecture addresses two alternative logics of action–security and sustainable development.

Jarrod Hayes is an associate professor of international relations in the Department of Political Science. Before coming to UML he was a tenured associate professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology. His primary fields of study are international security, global environmental politics, and foreign policy.
