A webinar with Dr. Fadhel Kaboub, organized by faculty of Masters in Political Economy of Money and Development.

On Thursday, April 22, at 4 p.m., the Masters in Political Economy of Money and Development is offering a thought-provoking virtual event on "Colonial Reparations and a Green New Deal for the Global South".

The webinar, hosted by Dr. Fadhel Kaboub - Associate Professor, Denison University and President, Global Institute for Sustainable Prosperity - focuses on the challenges and dilemmas the world is facing because of global climate change. The Global South is currently enduring most of this climate crisis, but preparing for climate change impact should also be addressed by the Global North with a more active role. Dr. Kaboub proposes a Global Green New Deal, paid for, through colonial and climate reparations. This will also mitigate the economic difficulties faced by the Global South, which are directly attributed to extractive colonial and neocolonial policies. Climate adaptation is today an emerging policy domain, where collective actions are required to tackle the adversities.
