8th ECPR General Conference @ Glasgow
Sep 3 – Sep 6 all-day

Since the publication of David Knoke’s Political Networks (1990), systematic research on social networks has grown dramatically in both political science and political sociology. The Political Networks section builds on the conversations started in Bordeaux at the 2013 General Conference. We are planning panels that fall under three major themes: the basic mechanisms through which network properties affect individual political action; the different ways in which network approaches have contributed to our understanding of collective action dynamics; the relationship between networks and policy making.

Colloquium on Forests and Climate @ Roone Arledge Auditorium, Alfred Lerner Hall, Columbia University
Sep 24 @ 1:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Colloquium on Forests and Climate @ Roone Arledge Auditorium, Alfred Lerner Hall, Columbia University

To foster new thinking, CIFOR and the Earth Institute issued a challenge to six thought leaders on climate: Tell us your big ideas on how to change the future by challenging the present.

These thought leaders will present their responses in a special high-level scientific debate held as part of New York’s Climate Week in September, Colloquium on Forests and Climate: New Thinking for Transformational Change.

Following the presentations, participants will join leading climate and forestry experts in debating these fresh ideas, charting the future direction of climate research – and envisioning bold initiatives in forestry, landscapes and sustainability to improve the lives of millions.
