Environmental Big Picture Show

In which the Nerds talk to environmental experts about the current state of the “big picture” aspects of environmental policy: climate change. They consider how far we’ve come in recent international negotiation rounds, what we can really expect from these agreements, and issues of democratic participation and justice in the debates.  In the second half of the show, Dr Anna Boucher joins the panel to talk about her new book on migration policy and gender.

Please note: due to a technical problem, this is a low-quality recording.
