This track seeks to bring together STS researchers who study climate science and climate policy in the Global South. We are particularly interested in empirical studies that privilege developing countries and their perspectives on climate change.

Long abstract:

Climate change has emerged in the last decades as a global environmental issue with policy developments that seek to have a global reach. Since then, STS researchers have been interested in the issue and carried out research on a wide range of topics related to the production, communication, and legitimation of climate science and climate policy. This track seeks to bring together STS researchers who look at these processes in the Global South. We are particularly interested in empirical studies that privilege developing countries contexts and their perspectives on climate change. We welcome abstracts on topics such as:

. The construction of knowledge on climate change in developing countries

. The geopolitics of interdisciplinary collaboration in climate science

. Scientific and political controversies over climate change

. Public understanding of climate science

. Climate change and the science/policy interface in the Global South

. Public participation/engagement in/with climate science and climate policy

. Social movements and climate change

. Climate science and traditional knowledges

. Monitoring technologies and the construction of perceptions of climate change

. Global and regional climate models

. Climate science communication

. Climate change and postcolonial issues

. Climate change and inequality
