For 21 years, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change has been seeking to forge a global agreement to address climate change. A panel of specialists representing a range of perspectives will address some of the dominant moral questions raised by the Paris meetings, including questions of fairness between rich and poor, of responsibility between states, and of what sort of procedures might yield a viable yet just outcome.


  • Juliet Eilperin, White House Bureau Chief, The Washington Post
  • Andrew Light, Senior Advisor to the U.S. Special Envoy on Climate Change and Director, Institute for Philosophy and Public Policy, George Mason University
  • Idil Boran, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, York University
  • Jesse Vogel, Washington, D.C. consultant on climate
  • Darrel Moellendorf, Professor for International Political Theory, Goethe University Frankfurt
  • Steven Hayward, CU-Boulder’s first visiting scholar in conservative thought and policy

This is the part of the "Western Civ Dialogue" series of events, sponsored by the Center for Western Civilization, Thought and Policy (CWCTP).
