Climate Change and Social Movements: Mobilizing and Resisting
RC24 Environment and Society (host committee)
This session will examine research on climate change and social
movements. Anticipated papers will examine a variety of movements,
from those trying to pressure governments to implement policy
measures consistent with the Paris Agreement to reduce GHG
emissions, to Denialist movements that reject anthropogenic climate
change and measures to combat it. Studies of a variety of
substantive movements may be included, such as movements in
opposition to oil and gas pipelines, coalitions between movements
(e.g. American Indian and environmental movements), climate justice
movements, relgious movements in support or opposition to climate
action, and industry led denialist activities. Studies of movements
from diverse geographical regions are encouraged. We anticipate a
variety of theoretical and methodological approaches to this topic.
In terms of format, we anticipate having a series of research paper
presentations, plus a discussant. We will have a chair to moderate
