JESP symposium: climate change and social policy

By Ian Gough, James Meadowcroft, John Dryzek, Jurgen Gerhards, Holger Lengfeld, Anil Markandya and Ramon Ortiz


Climate change is surely one of the most encompassing and egregious threats in Europe today, so it is appropriate that we consider its implications for social policy in Europe. It is true that climate change is a separate agenda, the preserve of a distinct academic and epistemic community, scholarly discourse, policy community, institutional structures and modes of governance; but the linkages between these two issues – climate change and its policy corollaries, and the ‘traditional’ domain of social policies – seem to us so strong and salient that they should be aired in a social policy journal
