Governance beyond the Anthropocene: Ecological Issues in European Political Practice and Thought

Hatfield, United Kingdom

22 June 2018

Hosted by the Security & Governance research group and supported with a small events grant from UACES, this interdisciplinary event brings together researchers working in European politics, law, political thought and International Relations to explore how ecological issues such as sustainable energy, resource security and climate change impact on our understanding of politics and the practice of policy-making within Europe. The workshop seeks to examine the conceptual relevance of recent ecological and new materialist approaches calling for a change in policy-making, law-making, and academic theorising of the life-agency nexus. In particular, the event presents perspectives which seek to theorise and evaluate the current state, direction and approach of ecological regulation in the European Union. By addressing the urgency of environmental concerns within the wider context of unprecedented supra-national regulation, the contributions to the workshop seek to create a stimulating intellectual exchange between experts working on the intersection of environmental issues with legal and political thought and practice from across Europe.
