"From Climate Refugees to Climate-induced Displacement: A Transnational Actor Network in Redefining Bangladeshi Climate Victims" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Northeastern Political Science Association, Loews Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA, Nov 09, 2017 <Not Available>. 2019-09-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1299027_index.html>

Abstract: This paper aims to examine why political-economic actors keep changing their interpretation of certain climate change data in defining climate victims of Bangladesh. The political-economic actors refer to state actors, non-state actors, international institutions and donor agencies. Based on my field research in Bangladesh, which comprises of elite interviews and content analysis of particular literature, this thesis argues that the actors have replaced the concept climate refugees with that of climate-induced displacement in defining climate victims of Bangladesh because this helps the actors develop a transnational network by which they can secure their economic interests through the followings.

(i) the actors are exempted from giving compensation to the climate victims by arguing that the climate affected people should be self-responsible for being resilient or adaptive in facing climate-induced calamities,
(ii) the actors justify that their prescribed adaptation/resilience projects are the best solution to the problems of climate victims, and
(iii) the actors can secure the contracts of big-budgeted ‘climate change adaptation/resilience projects’ .

The transnational network refers to a cross-border network of the state actors, non-state actors, international institutions and donors. The network does not derive their power and authority from only the ‘state actors’ but from the interaction of all these political-economic actors. This thesis also evaluates the adaptation/resilience projects and concludes that the projects do not address the issues of climate refugees or climate-induced displaced. Therefore, the relevance of the projects as a solution to the problem of climate victims is far from clear.

"Science and the Global Climate Change Regime: the Implications of Warnings of Abrupt Climate Change" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association, Hilton Hawaiian Village, Honolulu, Hawaii, Mar 05, 2005 <Not Available>. 2019-09-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p69669_index.html>

Abstract: The UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Kyoto Protocol were adopted when it was assumed that climate changes would evolve gradually. Recently, however, scientists have warned that abrupt climate change is a distinct possibility if freshwater intrusion into the North Atlantic slows or shuts down ocean currents and thus the thermohaline circulation. These scientific warnings cast further doubt on the adequacy of the gradual international cap-and-trade strategy embodied in the Kyoto Protocol. Will the emphasis continue to be on mitigating climate change by limiting emissions of greenhouse gases or by technological fixes that sequester them? Or will there be a decisive shift to designing adaptive strategies, as suggested by the recent Pentagon report on the implications of abrupt climate change for national security? Will the international community continue working together to address the threats posed by global climate change? Or will nations shun collective strategies in favor of self-help measures designed to buffer their own populations from the worst impacts of climate changes.

"The Netherlands' Climate Policy: Constructing Themselves/Constructing Climate Change" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association 48th Annual Convention, Hilton Chicago, CHICAGO, IL, USA, Feb 28, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-09-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p179125_index.html>

Abstract: This paper addresses the process of issue framing surrounding climate change in the Netherlands. The primary purpose is to identify and discuss the norms that constitute the climate change meanings held by the Dutch which in turn construct their identity, interests, and subsequent actions in a recursive process. This chapter asks two broad questions. What norms have influenced the Dutch definition of, and response to, climate change? Recursively, how have the Dutch come to redefine and promote these norms domestically and internationally over time? More specifically, this study seeks to uncover the processes of norm definition, adoption, and diffusion, employed by the principal norm entrepreneurs who have framed the social construction of climate change in the Dutch context. Several norms are apparent in Dutch climate change policy. The primary norm addressed is sustainable development with several embedded norms that embody the unique Dutch definition of sustainable development vis-à-vis their understanding of climate change and environmental degradation.
