New Blog Post: Climate Finance – Shifting for a Fix

23625949416_54e933fdff_kIn the second blog post of the series “Global Politics of Climate Change“, our guest contributor, William Hull, sheds light on the most recent developments in climate finance. This is one of the trickier points in climate negotiations, which has historically represented a challenge in cooperation between developed and developing countries.

William explains, in this blog post, how this issue was tackled during the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris (COP21) while looking at the next steps in the build-up to the Marrakesh Climate Change Conference (COP22) later this year. The blog post, entitled ‘Climate Finance: Shifting for a Fix’, is available here.

The next blog post in the series will focus on climate action and sustainable development.

New Blog Post: “All your Internet are Belong to Us”

283894146_df1150c0d8_oWe continue our blog post series on sovereignty and global politics with co-founder Miguelángel Verde Garrido‘s analysis of sovereignty in relation to information and communications technology, which argues that proposals for technological and information sovereignty would do little to defend from, for example, mass surveillance, and concludes further efforts to establish global governance would better serve to confront nation states’ challenges regarding the Internet.

The blog post, entitled ‘“All your Internet are Belong to Us”: On Nation States’ Claims of Sovereignty over ICT Architecture and Contents’, is available here.
