Title: Environment & Security Since 1994: Progress Through Diversification?
Date: Tue 11 Feb
Venue: Room 109 (Mohan Library), Elmfield Building, Dept of Politics & International Relations
The year 1994 was arguably the most significant in the development of the study and practice of environment and security. The 25 years since has seen proliferation of efforts by a diverse set of actors in a wide variety of settings and a growing set of issues. Academic inquiry and policy application have evolved for sure, but how do we assess progress in our understanding and application of insights generated over this period? Geoff Dabelko will highlight key developments in the evolution of environment and security since 1994 to better understand environment and security today and speculate on directions moving forward.
Geoff Dabelko is a professor at Ohio University’s Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs and senior advisor at the Woodrow Wilson Center’s Environmental Change and Security Program in Washington.
