Call for Papers: Migration and Conflict in a Global Warming Era: A Political Understanding of Climate Change

Special Editor: Prof. S. Klepp

 

Aus Politik und Zeitgeschichte: Wald  In recent years, we have learnt more about the far-reaching political effects of
  anthropogenic climate change, such as climate induced human mobility or
  climate-related conflicts. Securitization discourses and anti-migration policies are
  gaining strength, while empirical findings have shown that environmental migration
  entails mostly South–South movements, internal displacement, and trapped populations.
  Conflicts linked to climate change are mostly non-violent, and climate change effects are
  inseparable from socio–political and economic dynamics. This Special Issue aims to
  draw attention to underrepresented research perspectives and to second order effects
  of the political dimensions of climate change.

Publication: A Critical Approach to Climate Change Adaptation
 

Showcard  This edited volume brings together critical research on climate change
  adaptation discourses, policies, and practices from a multidisciplinary
  perspective. Drawing on examples from countries including Colombia,
  Mexico, Canada,  Germany, Russia, Tanzania, Indonesia, and the Pacific
  Islands, the chapters describe how adaptation measures are interpreted,
  transformed,and implemented at grassroots level and how these measures
  are changing or interfering with power relations, legal pluralism and local
  (ecological) knowledge. As a whole, the book challenges established
  perspectives of climate change adaptation by taking into account issues
  of cultural diversity, environmental justice and human rights, as well as
  feminist or intersectional approaches. This innovative approach allows for
  analyses of the new configurations of knowledge and power that are evolving
  in the name of climate change adaptation.

Call for Papers: World Social Science Forum
 

We would like to draw your attention to the following call for papers for our session OP4-01 Transformation in coastal zones: Coping with global change at the World Social Sciences Forum 2018 in Fukuoka, Japan, 25-28 September 2018.

In this panel, we aim to critically explore the assumptions, triggers, catalysts and motivations for transformation in the contexts of coastal realms. We ask whether the concept of transformation is adequate to cope with the complexities of global social and environmental change and innovation, with aspirations for sustainable development set by the 2030 Agenda, but also with issues of power and representation across scale and social positioning as they manifest in coastal areas.

For more details about the session see: http://www.wssf2018.org/session-parallel-02-list.html#a_p4

Abstracts may be submitted through the conference website via: http://www.wssf2018.org/call-for-papers.html

Submission deadline for papers is 17 March 2017.

Invitation: Workshop on marine social science in Mai 2018 

 

Dear researcher doing marine social sciences in Germany,


The strategy group of social sciences and humanities of the Consortium of German Marine Research is aiming to network, connect and organize social sciences researchers interested in the coastal and marine realm. Following a more strategic meeting on the 24th of May (which you are welcome to attend; it is in German), we want to organize a workshop focusing on concrete research on the 25th of May. The Marine Coastal Cultures network (MCC) that hosted the „Coastal and Marine Epistemologies Roundtable“ in Hamburg last year will organize a thematic session as part of the workshop agenda.

Co-Author Prof. Dr. Silja Klepp: World Ocean Review 5 - Coasts, A Vital Habitat Under Pressure

 

Aus Politik und Zeitgeschichte: Wald  The fifth World Ocean Review (WOR) explores the
  coastal habitat and the diverse expectations upon
  this habitat. It provides a glimpse into millions of
  years of history, elucidates the theory of continental
  drift and discusses the many ways in which coasts
  have changed. It also illustrates how the diverse
  ecosystem services rendered by the coasts are
  being subjected to increasing pressure, and profiles
  measures that will be necessary in the future to
  respond effectively to the threats from both climate
  change and natural disasters.

New initiative of Kiel Marine Science invited to submit a full proposal to the German Excellence Strategy

Poster kritnet











After two successful applications in 2006 and 2012, Kiel marine researchers today (September 29) have cleared the first hurdle to submitting a new large-scale research proposal within the framework of the German Excellence Strategy. The new research project "Future Ocean Sustainability" is thus one of the positively assessed applications in the pre-selection.
