The course aims at imparting a comprehension of the range and possibilities in which science and research may contribute constructively to public decision-making, where public debates on climate change offer a pertinent subject.

Climate change is rightly considered by many as an unprecendented challenge for humankind. The proper response to this challenge is, however, still not settled. Ongoing ethical, political (and economic) debates prompted by this imminent threat may therefore serve as basis to shed light on recent developments towards interdisciplinary approaches in scientific research as well as noticeable transformations in the relation between academic science and democratic societies.

Seminar style: students' presentations plus discussion.

Presentation plus short end-term paper.
