Special Issue: Normative and Conceptual Dimensions of the International Climate Negotiations

 

(Vol. 32, No. 2, Winter 2014)

There is a great need for philosophical analysis and the clarity it provides as we head toward the 2015 international climate negotiations and aim for a durable and fair new agreement that can spur meaningful progress on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and building resilience to climate change.

This special issue of Philosophy and Public Policy Quarterly, edited by Kenneth Shockley (University at Buffalo) and Gwynne Taraska (George Mason University), analyzes several important and interrelated philosophical dimensions of the international climate negotiations. Contributors include Idil Boran, Jesse Vogel, and Kenneth Shockley.

Call for Papers

 

Philosophy and Public Policy Quarterly seeks the submission of manuscripts that address the normative and conceptual dimensions of issues of importance and timeliness in public policy.

The editors favor articles that are fewer than 5,000 words and are written in a style that is accessible to a broadly informed public. Back issues, available in the journal archive, exemplify the length, style, and philosophical and policy relevance of the articles the journal seeks to publish. Short opinion pieces are welcome, as are longer essays that might serve as target articles for solicited responses. Articles will be reviewed by the editors and by outside referees and, if accepted, edited for publication.

The Institute for Philosophy and Public Policy has published its journal since 1981.
