Planet Earth is in peril: there is little argument over this. However, the response of the international community and mankind are far from satisfactory. So, what is the way ahead? In an attempt to answer this question, among others related to the subject, UCD Politics and International Relations Society bring to you an exciting panel discussion on International Climate Change Policy & Climate Justice. Oisin Coghlan the Director of Friends of the Earth since 2005, is also a key member of the steering committee of the Environmental Pillar and National Economic and Social Council. With an academic background in Sociology and Politics, along with experience in overseas aid, Oisin is bound to be a valuable addition to the panel. Dr. Alexa Zellentin is an assistant professor in the School of Politics and International Relations at UCD. Her area of expertise includes the cultural aspects of climate justice, such as loss of culture and forced migration and the idea of historical responsibility in international climate change legislation. Dr. Alexa will bring a needed understanding on the cultural lens and climate justice. Dr. David Donoghue, the Former Irish Permanent Representative to the United Nations, brings with him experiences from a long diplomatic career, standing out among them his role in co-facilitating final consensus on the Sustainable Development Goals among the 193 member states - a significant achievement. Dr. Donoghue will bring expertise on the institutional mechanisms and limitations for the implementation of international climate change policy. Location: Student Centre, Red Room
