We facilitate an international network of climate scholars, host events and provide grants to scholars to promote research focused on understanding political conflict over climate change. Scholars in our network are social scientists producing peer-reviewed research and collaborating in this field.
CSSN also serves as an informational resource for journalists, policy professionals, litigation teams and others.
CSSN was launched in October 2020 and is headquartered at the Institute at Brown for Environment and Society.
CSSN is led by Dr. Timmons Roberts, Executive Director, and Dr. Robert Brulle, Director of Research.
