International Conference on Fossil Fuels and Climate Policy
International Conference on Fossil Fuels and Climate Policy, 26-27 September 2016, Queen’s College, Oxford, UK
The conference will bring together researchers, policy-makers, and practitioners to discuss how to enable policies, plans and investment decisions on further fossil fuel extraction and trade to be more consistent with long-term global climate and sustainability goals.
The programme is organized around three main themes:
1. Fossil fuel investment: risks and consequences
2. Supply-side climate policies: options, implications, and challenges to implementation
3. Transitions away from fossil fuel production: political challenges and equity issues
The conference is designed for a wide mix of researchers (e.g. economists, modellers, social scientists, and legal scholars), policy-makers, private sector, and civil society participants. We are currently accepting abstracts for individual papers, as well as proposals for thematic sessions and special sessions (e.g. policy roundtables, debates, speed-talks). Proposals are due 8 May 2016.
