Join Oxford academics from the Department of Politics and International Relations, School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography, and Faculty of Law - Henry Shue, Javier Lezaun, Thom Wetzer and Lavanya Rajamani - as they discuss with the Chair, Dr Steve Smith, the equity, justice and distributive aspects of reducing and removing GHG emissions in pursuit of Net Zero.
