A Pale Blue Dot under Pressure: Climate Change, Justice, and Resilience in Our Rapidly Warming World

Climate change is one of the, if not the, most significant threats facing our planet today. It affects life on Earth in countless ways—atmospheric health to wellness; natural ecosystems to small businesses; global security to neighborhood food insecurity; and international policy to individual decision-making—while exacerbating inequality. Symposium sessions will investigate global climate systems and disasters, health, climate justice, and adaptation and remediation.

Conference: The Age of Roe: The Past, Present, and Future of Abortion in America

Conferences & Symposia

Harvard Radcliffe Institute will hold a major public conference to probe the complex and unpredictable ways that Roe v.

The existential issue of abortion—and the galvanizing impact of Roe in particular—transformed the nation’s politics and public policy and its social movement energies, as well as the operations of the courtroom and the clinic.
