Global klimatetik - vad är det som står på spel?
2009 (Swedish)In: Osäkrat klimat - laddad utmaning, Stockholm: Forskningsrådet Formas , 2009, 369-380 p.Chapter in book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
The aim of this project is to analyse the intrinsic values threatened by climate change in the space of capabilities, which includes elucidating responsible climate change actors and moral objects. Thus, the main question is: Is it possible to develop a comprehensive climate change ethic in the context of international and cross-level climate change responses? The First objective is (a) to identify the values being threatened by climate change. This involves a systematic descriptive analysis of moral theorizing (Jamieson 1995) within climate change discourse. Out of the values identified in (a), the second objective (b) is to distinguish between intrinsic values and values that are only means to a valuable life (instrumental values). This will be carried out by applying TCA, i.e. Sen’s conception of positive freedom to the climate change justice values. The third objective (c) is to develop a climate change ethic consisting of a list of foundational human capabilities. This involves an assessment of whether these intrinsic values/capabilities, according to theoretical and practical reason should be included on a set list of climate change capabilities.
