Over the past years, China's role in global climate negotiations has become ever more crucial and controversial. While these years have also seen the ethical debate on global climate policy grow and flourish, the debate has engaged surprisingly little in a global dialogue. Therefore, it is with great pleasure that we welcome Professor Huan Qingzhi, a leading scholar working at the Centre for Environmental Politics Research (Peking University). He will present his views on China's role in global climate policy. Professor Rana Mitter (Oxford China Centre) and Benito Mueller (Oxford Institute for Energy Studies) will provide inputs and there will be plenty of space for discussion with the audience. This is a public event and all are warmly invited. This lecture is hosted by the Oxford Martin Programme on Human Rights for Future Generations, The Oxford China Centre, The Universities' China Committee in London and the University of Reading's Reading Ethics and Political Philosophy.
