The Project

The project „The Global Governance of Climate Engineering“ studies various Climate or Geo-engineering proposals from an interdisciplinary viewpoint and with regards to a global political regulation. The graduate college is structured to conjoin different scientific fields to answer the following research questions: Which technologies are feasible from a scientific and economic viewpoint? How do discourses on benefits and risks evolve and how is the topic taken on by the media? How are the suggestions debated within international institutions and how are decisions made on research and implementation? The involved disciplines comprise Human Geography, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology, Law, Environmental Physics and Economics.
