Frederic Hanusch: The Democracy-Climate-Nexus – An Earth101 Lecture

In his lecture Dr. Frederic Hanusch takes a look at established democracies separately, some appear to be more successful in dealing with climate change than others. Yet the characteristics of climate change and the unintended consequences of democracy might contradict each other to different degrees, e.g. some democracies perhaps find better solutions than others to overcome their short-termism, in order to be able to better deal with the long time horizon of climate change. Hence, different levels of democracy might be an explanatory factor for differences in the climate performances. This lecture introduces the democracy-climate nexus by describing findings about the relationship, discussing main arguments of the debate and presenting an empirical overview by comparing the climate policies of over 30 democracies. Frederic Hanusch studied from 2005-2011 at the universities of Gießen, Castellón and Heidelberg, where he received a M.A. in political science, philosophy and sociology. From 2011-2015 he did his Dr. phil. as part of the research group "Democracy and Climate Change" at the Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities in Essen (KWI). Besides, he worked from 2013-2016 at the German Advisory Council on Global Change (WBGU). In 2014 he was a visiting scholar at the University of Toronto. Since 2016 he is part of the IASS. His research is focused on a combination of democracy research and dynamics of global change. He published with the WBGU on the SDGs, international climate protection and global urbanization. At the KWI, he worked on a wide range of topics in the humanities and social sciences. In 2017, his book "Democracy and Climate Change" was published in the Routledge Global Cooperation Series. At the IASS, he studies the importance of time and future in context of global change.
