News from Apr 15, 2022
Julia Teebken’s book "The Politics of Human Vulnerability to Climate Change. Exploring climate adaptation lock-ins in China and the United States" was just released with Routledge's new Climate Justice series. The book shows how social inequality manifests in the context of climate change. It analyzes why social vulnerability to climate change impacts is so difficult to address along with different political systems. The work is based on two empirical case studies, Atlanta in the federal state of Georgia in the southeastern United States and Jinhua in the eastern Zhejiang province, China. Both cases are characterized by strong social and geographic vulnerability to climate change impacts. At the same time, both cities exhibit strong adaptation deficits.
