Global Initiative Lecture Series on Human Rights by Dr. Diana Liverman

Diana Liverman currently holds academic appointments at Oxford University, where she is Professor of Environmental Science in the School of Geography and Environment and the University of Arizona where she is affiliated with the Institute for Environment and Society and School of Geography and Development. From 2003 to 2008 she directed Oxford’s Environmental Change Institute where she is now a senior research fellow and from January 2009 is based in Tucson where she is helping to develop university-wide environmental initiatives and working on a new National Academies study (America's Climate Choices) to advise the US government on responses to climate change.

Abstract of Lecture:
How can the response to climate change address concerns of ethics, justice and rights between countries, peoples, and generations? As the new US administration internationalizes its response to climate change, and the international community seeks to draft a new international agreement in Copenhagen, what are the distributional implications of climate impacts and climate policies? This lecture will examine these fundamental questions about climate and development through analysis of vulnerabilities and adaptation, decarbonization and carbon offsets, and the interests of different state and non state actors who variously seek advantage and justice in a warming world.
