In our October 2021 webinar we heard from Ian Gough, a Visiting Professor at the Centre for the Analysis of Social Exclusion (CASE) and an Associate at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment (GRI), both at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Until summer 2009 He was Professor of Social Policy at the University of Bath, where he is now Professor Emeritus.
His studies focus on climate change, from both moral economy and political economy perspectives. For the last decade he has been researching into the social dimensions of climate change, the impacts of inequality and capitalist growth on global warming, how universal human needs can yet be satisfied and how eco-social policy might safeguard sustainable wellbeing. The result has been published as Heat, Greed and Human Need: Climate change, capitalism and sustainable wellbeing (2017) and in numerous articles since then.
Here are some of Ian's recent publications.
Defining floors and ceilings: the contribution of human needs theory, in Sustainability: Science, Practice and Policy, 16 (1)
