Shared political responsibiilty
MetadataShow full item record
This chapter explores the nature of political responsibilty in relation to climate change. It argues that rather than identify specific agents responsible for climate change - an approach that dominates legal and moral theory - a political responsibility framework provides ways of thinking about global dilemmas in terms of political actions that we may undertake together. It draws on the theoretical notion of 'shared responsibility' to develop this concept.
