As part of the Towards Just and Inclusive Energy Transitions Webinar Series I have provided a webinar at the University of Utrecht. In my talk “Less Carbon Emissions, More Blood? How Europe’s Turn to Green Energy Can Contribute to Violence Elsewhere”.
With the European Green Deal, the European Union (EU) seeks to make its economy ecologically sustainable. Being the second largest economy in the world, the impacts will also be felt beyond the European continent. In my talk I discussed how some of these policies can unwillingly increase the likelihood for violent conflict in the Global South. Link to website
