Carbon Sinks as Global Commons
Part III of the "Global Commons" series
In the third episode of our mini-series about Global Commons, we hear from Megan Blomfield, a senior lecturer in political philosophy at the University of Sheffield. Her research concerns global justice and the environment, focusing on the problem of climate change, which you can read more about in her 2019 book, Global Justice, Natural Resources, and Climate Change. In today’s episode we explore carbon sinks as global commons. Because the issue of climate change concerns how we use and share carbon sinks like the atmosphere, the concept of the global commons has been used to invoke more equitable sharing of carbon sinks. However, Blomfield will show us that this conception isn’t so straightforward when we consider carbon sinks more widely, like land and ocean based sinks.Episode from 2 February 2023
Reconstituting the Seabed as a Global Commons: What Would it Take?
Part II of the "Global Commons" series
In the second episode of our mini-series about Global Commons, we hear from Isabel Feichtner, a current Fellow at the New Institute, where she works on Global and Urban Commons and in particular Commons Public Partnerships. In this episode, we will be focusing on a specific global commons- the deep seabed. Feichtner expertly shows us how the deep seabed regime, often hailed as a successful example of international cooperation and management of a global commons, has actually developed with an economic extraction focus to the detriment of distributive justice and environmental protection.Episode from 19 January 2023
The Territorialization of the Global Commons
Part I of the "Global Commons" series
This is the first episode in the podcast mini series Global Commons and Their Discontents, a series which aims to present the contributions and discussions from our September 2022 workshop of the same name. In this episode we hear from Daniel Lambach, a political scientist currently working as a Heisenberg Fellow at the Research Centre Normative Orders at Goethe Universität Frankfurt. Lambach provides a helpful overview of three different global commons domains, the oceans, airspace, and outerspace, as well as the three types of spatial models used in the territorialization process of these domains. He also identifies several territorialization trends and considers what this means for the future of global commons management and use.Episode from 3 January 2023
Blood Oil Commodities
The interview with Petra Gümplová addresses the problem of clean trade with natural resources. It discusses available concepts of conflict commodities and points to available policies trying to regulate trade with minerals from conflict zones. It presents how political theorists concerned with global justice discuss natural resources and conflicts and what conceptions of clean trade there are and what ideas about global justice underlie them. The question of property to valuable goods like minerals, oil, gas etc. is raised. Also, the question about what kinds of responsibilites there are in matters of trade with conflict commodities.Episode from 9 August 2022
