Political Theory SRC Lecture: Politics of Self-Governance under the Paris Agreement? Explaining the Emergence of Sub-state Actorness in Climate Change
On April 9th, PhD Candidate Ana Raquel Dias will discuss the affirmation of sub-state authorities as global actors, and their emerging dynamics in climate matters within the Paris Climate Agreement. The lecture will focus on the participation of sub-state authorities in global governance for the efficient delivery of international targets, and on their demand for ‘self-governance’ while competing with the centrality of states.

Archive of Student Experiences and Help Resources in Ukraine
IAPSS is gathering information from students who live in Ukraine. Our page will be continuously updated and will serve as the archive of student experiences living in wartime. There are student testimonies, donation links, and a Petition to Educational Institutions To Accept Ukrainian Students that any organization can sign.
