Case Study Pitch

Prof. Christensen is author of InsSciDE case study n°7.4, Environmental change communication as a diplomacy problem. Read the pitch for this case study here.

This pitch outlines how case study 7.4 places the Arctic and the record sea ice minima into the broader context of communication about climate change and the role of the Arctic in that continuum. Key quote: ’The point of departure for this InsSciDE case study is the following assertion: if diplomacy is the management of change in the international environment through engagement with foreign governments (Pamment, 2012), Arctic public diplomacy is the management of that changing environment through engagement with international publics.’
