Lund Critical Debate
Noted experts in international affairs meet on Cornell’s campus for the Einaudi Center’s annual Lund Critical Debate. These debates on pressing issues in world news and policy are moderated by Einaudi Center faculty.
April 11: Getting to Climate Justice
This year's Lund debate explores how citizens and policymakers worldwide can act to increase justice in our shared climate crisis. How can we imagine new strategies for reshaping global trade and finance, national and transnational security policies, and environmental protections that go beyond political borders?
Join the panelists for a conversation on our climate’s state of emergency and how governments can help.
Kate Aronoff: climate journalist, The New Republic
