CfP - Panel "Local environmental concerns vs. Climate" - ECPR in Worclaw

Dear all,

Merethe Dotterud Leiren (CICERO) and myself invite papers to a panel at the ECPR conference in Wrocław 4-7 September 2019. Our Panel is part of the section "Energy Transitions in Europe: On the Crossroads of Changing Political and Socio-Technological Paradigms" chaired by Jan Osička and Kacper Szulecki.

Please find section details here:

https://ecpr.eu/Events/SectionDetails.aspx?SectionID=827&EventID=123

The panel will include 3 – 5 papers. We will be chairing/co-chairing the panel and presenting one co-authored paper based on the results of our Horizon2020 WinWind project.

If you are interested in submitting a paper to our panel, please propose an abstract (max 500 words; 3-8 key words) by February 18, 2019 via the ECPR web site. You may send us your paper proposal prior to this deadline to let us know that you are interested in participating.

Our preliminary abstract for the panel is as follows:

Local environmental concerns vs. Climate: Increasing societal polarization in energy policy: Energy projects such as renewable energy deployment or grid construction require extensive use of land, resulting in two key challenges that tend to oppose each other: climate change mitigation versus local environmental concerns. We invite papers that focus on increasing societal polarization in energy and climate policy, in particular the conflict between opposing concerns, including contributions addressing social acceptance.

Best regards
