Climate Change, Ethics and Human Security

Climate Change, Ethics and Human Security

BOOK edited by Asuncion St. Clair, Karen O'Brien and Berit Kristoffersen.

Cambridge University Press, 2014

The concept of human security offers a new approach to the challenges of climate change, and the responses that could lead to a more equitable and sustainable future. 

This book was edited by CROP Scientific Director Asuncion St. Clair, member of CROP Scientific Committee Karen O'Brien (University of Oslo, Norway), and Berit Kristoffersen (University of Tromsö, Norway).

Presenting human security perspectives on climate change, this volume raises issues of equity, ethics and environmental justice, as well as the capacity to respond to what is increasingly considered to be the greatest societal challenge for humankind.

Written by international experts, Climate Change, Ethics and Human Security argues that climate change must be viewed as an issue of human security, and not an environmental problem that can be managed in isolation from larger questions concerning development trajectories, and ethical obligations towards the poor and to future generations.

The book will be of interest to researchers, policy makers, and practitioners concerned with the human dimensions of climate change, as well as to upper-level students in the social sciences and humanities interested in climate change.
