The Green New Deal in Europe and America: Prospects, Challenges, Implications
Europeans and Americans have both called for Green New Deals (GND) to drastically reduce the carbon footprint of their economies and to tackle social inequality. Yet the contours, politics, and prospects of such grand climate policy look quite different on either side of the Atlantic. This panel will explore the prospects, challenges, and implications of GNDs as envisioned in the United States and the European Union. How do European and American roadmaps to a carbon-neutral economy compare? How do the economic and political prospects for a GND differ on either side of the Atlantic in this new world of COVID-19? What role do international organizations and agreements play? And what are the geopolitical and social implications of a world transitioning off fossil fuels?
