Global Attribution Models, Mediation and Mobilisation in Sweden and Spain

Project: Research

Project Details


With respective advances made in environmental social sciences and legal studies, we are at a threshold of understanding the implications of establishing causal links between climate change and the risks of extreme events.

GAMES will conduct research in Sweden and Spain by applying models to attribute causes of impacts of extremes, investigating mediation of this attribution in legal and governance frameworks, and examining its role in social mobilisation associated with disasters.

The project will show how knowledge of climate extremes is now, and could be in the future, institutionalised in legal frameworks and governance; how these structures create constraints or opportunities for social mobilisation and then for transformational change; and how attribution can contribute to, and be enhanced by, the mobilisation of societal groups.
