Power for a Just Transition

March 30 @ 9:00 am - 5:30 pm

Using Law and Political Economy as a guiding framework, this workshop will host emerging scholarship in conversation with academics and policymakers, working to identify innovative methods of analysis from law, economics, sociology, or policy that can interrogate and combat hegemonic and capitalist power.

Featuring keynote speakers Kate Aronoff (Writer for New Republic) and Isabel Estevez (Deputy Director of Industrial Policy and Trade at the Roosevelt Institute), this workshop will provide a specific lens on climate policy, addressing crucial questions about public intervention, industrial policy, and democratic governance in the face of climate catastrophe and authoritarian capitalism.

The event will also host a roundtable discussion on regulation, state action, and governance featuring Clara Mattei (New School), An Li (Sarah Lawrence), JW Mason (John Jay), and Jamee Moudud (Sarah Lawrence) moderated by Martha McCluskey (University of Buffalo).

Attendance is free and breakfast and lunch will be served complimentary for all conference attendees.
