A significant project
The ecological and climate crises call for an unprecedented collective mobilization to understand the complexity of the phenomena and to propose solutions to the problems they raise.
Political ecology debates suffer from a lack of fundamental research, which is absolutely necessary as a complement to the Earth system sciences. This initiative, which was created at the instigation of Bruno Latour, will welcome a group of ten young researchers who are at the forefront of research in political ecology. Their backgrounds come from a variety of human and social sciences fields, including anthropology, sociology, philosophy, environmental history, geography, economics, administrative sciences, law, and geopolitics.
The Fund is part of Sciences Po’s “Environmental Transformations Initiative,” which seeks to ensure the consistency and visibility of research activities on these topics. Putting academic excellence, interdisciplinary, and critical analysis at the service of research on climate and ecological changes is at the core of Sciences Po’s goals.
The creation of the Fund also supports Sciences Po’s 2020-2023 Transition Plan, which includes, among other things, the creation of a mandatory course on environmental transitions for first-year college students.
