Environmental Majoritarianism

Elisabeth Ellis, Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Otago, will present her research on "Environmental Majoritarianism" on Monday, Oct. 19, at 2 p.m. in Thompson Library, room 165. The failure of our political institutions to manage the environment is widely acknowledged, but how can they be reformed to reflect the real nature of environmental conflict? Ellis argues that the answer is more and better democracy.

This event is co-sponsored by the Political Science Department’s Political Theory Workshop and The Conversations on Morality, Politics, and Society (COMPAS) program of the OSU Center for Ethics and Human Values, which focuses this year on sustainability.
