Rapid Switch

A cross-disciplinary exploration involving political science, other applied social and behavioral science, and economics whose purpose is to expand and deepen an understanding of pathways to decarbonization and also to contribute to solving one of the pressing public policy problems of our time.

Decarbonization of the world’s energy systems is arguably the most critical global technological infrastructure transformation anticipated during the next few decades. All countries will face significant challenges to manage the transition to a low-carbon economy, and these challenges will be especially severe for developing countries, seeking also to meet demanding economic development goals. In response to these challenges, we propose a cross-disciplinary exploration involving political science, other applied social and behavioral science, and economics. Our purpose is to expand and deepen our understanding of pathways to decarbonization and also to contribute to solving one of the pressing public policy problems of our time.
