Changing Tides: The New Role of Climate Change in Foreign Policy
About this event
This month, world leaders and climate experts will be convening at Glasgow for the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference. While the United States and the European Union will be keen to set the international climate agenda, the fragmented approaches to climate policy within the EU and President Biden’s stalled climate deal suggest there is still much to be debated internally—in particular, the new role climate change will play in foreign policy and national security. How have countries been integrating climate policy into their foreign policy goals? Is there consensus among Western allies as to what climate foreign policy looks like? To discuss these questions and more, we will speak with climate security experts Sherri Goodman and Connie Hedegaard in this month’s edition of #TransatlanticTuesdays.
