LUCSUS Seminar: Will food riots return as a result of structural change and climate change impacts?

Seminar
Welcome to this LUCSUS seminar held by Professor Lennart Olsson from LUCSUS

Current evidence of climate-induced conflicts and migration is weak and ambiguous. Food riots, once a common form of collective violence, may become more common, not because of climate change in and of itself but as a consequence of complex interaction between structural change of the political economy and climate change impacts. The combination of rapid rural-urban migration, premature de-industrialisation and the end of cheap food may result in social unrest in megalopolis regions. In my presentation I show how theoretical reasoning may provide predictive understanding of future outbreaks of collective violence and potential hotbeds of migration
