With the aim of moving the conversation from one of managing crises to one of building a more just and equitable global order, the Energy and Environment Research Cluster plans to focus on three broad research avenues in the coming years. First, it will explore how our responses to climate change and emergent technologies might ameliorate or exacerbate racial, gender, and economic inequality.
Second, it will analyse the ways in which environmental policy and technological innovations impact and intersect with other issues related to structural injustice. Third, it will examine just what equitable energy access would look like, and how it is linked to global public health.
