Details of good energy policy seminars for Michaelmas and Lent terms.

The “In Search of ‘Good’ Energy Policy” seminar series hosted at the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH) explores energy policy themes from different disciplinary perspectives including: economics, history, philosophy, theology, politics, law, anthropology, psychology, and engineering. The aim of the series is to identify principles and processes for ‘good’ energy policy making with an emphasis on the contributions of different disciplines to ‘good’ policy formulation.

Seminars are held every fortnight during term time. The seminars are open to staff and students from the University of Cambridge, the public, and members of other organisations, industry and government. Each seminar includes a main speaker and a respondent from another discipline, followed by Q&A and a discussion open to all participants.
