HoW: History on Wednesday seminar series 4 September
Glenda Sluga | University of Sydney
Climate and Capitalism
This talk takes up the 1972 UN Human Environment conference: the first example of the attempted global governance of environmental issues and climate change that foundered on the challenges of development and North-South antagonisms. I will argue that history connects Delos, the ancient capital of the Athenian League, with the club of Rome, and the New International Economic Order.
