CTSJ 108 Climate, Refugees and Global Reactionary Authoritarianism

Through the year 2020 we have seen the rise of reactionary, ethno-nationalist politics across the world. It is likely that this rising authoritarian movement will intensify as climate change creates massive population movements among people in vulnerable economic situations and most susceptible to displacement. This course will critically examine the nature and interrelation between resurgent racist, ethnno-nationalist ideologies, tracing their historical and conceptual roots. It will also take up recent studies of the looming consequences of climate change for population displacement while examining the viability of public policy frameworks and legal instruments for addressing these exigent problems.
