Abstract / Description of output
What ways does do the key framing concepts of “sovereignty” and “property” play in initiating and accelerating anthropogenic climate change? Sovereignty has supplied and continues to supply a congenial host for the kind of property regime that produces economic growth, but also, and progressively, harmful climate change associated with such growth. At a most basic level of argument, we can point to how the development of a kind of “elective affinity” between sovereignty and property helped to fashion and sustain a political economy ultimately generative of harmful climate change.
