LSBU academics discuss the implications of UN Paris Climate talks for policy-makers at PSA conference
11 December 2015
Professor Ros Wade and Dr Hugh Atkinson of London
South Bank University’s (LSBU) School of Law and Social Sciences participated
in the Political Studies Association’s (PSA) recent symposium on the
implications of the United Nation’s (UN) current Paris Climate Talks.
The Paris Climate Talks are the year’s biggest
international politics conference and the greatest re-evaluation of the UN’s
climate ambitions since the Copenhagen summit in 2009. More than 50 people attended the PSA
forum at the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation to debate the repercussions
of the November Paris attacks on the UN’s conference, as well as the links
between geopolitical stability and climate.
“It was great to share expertise and discuss the
implications of the UN’s hugely influential Climate Talks. The conclusions we
drew will now be used in a policy briefing that the PSA will be sending out to
politicians and policy makers after the climate talks are completed,” said
