Insecure: A Security Podcast – Episode One

  • Date:

In this debut episode of Insecure: A Security Podcast we discuss environmental security and COP 26 with Prof. Richard Beardsworth, the Head of the School of Politics and International Studies at the University of Leeds, and Dr. Nicole Nisbett, a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Leeds.

Listen to the podcast here.

This fascinating discussion explores how climate change is securitised by different actors, actors’ different experiences of climate change and climate diplomacy, the potential conflict between climate security and other forms of security, and how does the Russian invasion of Ukraine impact on the challenge of climate change and the need for climate action. In doing so the episode seeks to address the central question: is the world more secure or insecure today as a result of COP 26?
