Event title:RIEL Seminar: How can we make environmental policy reform stick?
Presenter:Professsor Andrew Campbell
Head, School of Environment
Director, Research Institute for the Environment and Livelihoods
Director, Centre for Renewable Energy
Location:Red 1.3.01.
Date / Time:Friday July 4, 2014

additional information:

Australia is seeing systematic attacks on environmental policy at an unprecedented level of intensity, sophistication and comprehensiveness. As a consequence, environmental policy reform is much more difficult even more so. There is a broader political narrative in Australia — exemplified by George Megalogenis in his book 'The Australian Moment' — that policy reform has become too difficult, that vested interests have become too powerful and governments are less bold and less able in the 24-hour media cycle to make and sustain a compelling case for reform. This is arguably especially the case for policy reform that favours long-term conservation over short-term resource exploitation and development.


That contention is reasonable, but this seminar will contend that reform is not impossible — just more difficult.


This is a modified version of a keynote presentation given at Harvard in late March, to a conference convened by Professor Mike Young, the Gough Whitlam and Malcolm Fraser Chair in Australian Studies at Harvard University, on the Dynamics of Environmental Policy Reform. The conference was opened by Kevin Rudd, now a Visiting Professor in the Kennedy School at Harvard. Prof Rudd was asked to reflect on the same question, setting up an interesting comparison between the practitioner and academic perspectives.


The seminar will explore how and why environmental policy reform is becoming more difficult, and propose some principles for more effective and durable policy reform. The context will be environmental policy, but the principles are likely to be widely applicable in other sectors.


For more information go to RIEL. We hope to see you there.

Target audience: Open to the public.

E: Angus Smith
P: 0447 297 342
Media release /
additional information:

The concern for the clearing of peatlands in Peninsular Malaysia has been centred on annual peat fires causing 'haze,' which has had serious implications on the health of the people and the economy of the region. In the peat fires of 1997/98, 2.2 million ha of peatlands in SEA were burnt and this contributed 6% of the world's annual CO2 emission.

 

This presentation analyses the impacts of policy on the utilisation of peatlands in Peninsular Malaysia. It examines policy to assess if they are functioning as intended and explores why some appear to be failing to fulfil their objectives.

Target audience: Open to the public.

Presenter:Dr Michele Lobo, Deakin University

additional information:
Emerging debates on anti-racism within white majority cultures centre emotion and affect to explore the visceral nature of racialised encounters that unfold in public spaces of the city. This paper builds on such understandings by conceptualising whiteness as a force that exerts affective pressures on bodies of colour who are hypervisible in public spaces, showing that these pressures have the potential to wound, numb and immobilise bodies affecting what they can do or what they can become. This paper argues, however, that affective energies from human and non-human sources are productive forces that are also sensed in public spaces such as the suburban beach. These energies entangle sensuous bodies with the richness of a more-than-human world and have the potential to offer new insights into exploring how racially differentiated bodies live with difference. The paper draws on ethnographic research conducted in Darwin, a city at the centre of politicised public debates on asylum seeker policy, migrant integration and Indigenous wellbeing.
 
Michele Lobo is an Australian Research Council Discovery Senior Research Fellow (ARC DECRA) a the Centre for Citizenship and Globalisation, Deakin University, Melbourne, Australia.
Target audience: Open to the public.

Media release /
additional information:
Processes allowing co-existence of trees and grasses in tropical savannas have long intrigued ecologists.
 
Early theories focussed on climatic controls, but a conceptual model has emerged suggesting that savanna trees are subject to a fire-mediated recruitment bottleneck, with frequent fires preventing recruitment of saplings into the tree layer and maintaining biomass well below the climate-determined carrying capacity.
 
I propose that this conceptual model has been overemphasised in Australian tropical savannas, where tree abundance is primarily limited by water availability, not fire.
 
The dominant trees, eucalypts, have a remarkable capacity to grow through the 'fire trap' to reach fire-resistant sizes.

Over the last decade it is becoming clearer that Charles Darwin was not the only evolutionist nor was he a revolutionary in the usual sense of the word. How do these findings fit with a historical narrative about science in the developed world that tends to emphasise heroic figures?  This talk will provide a quick review of recent findings relating to Darwin's achievements and also address some of the larger shifts in understanding the way science was practiced in the past.
