The CSSN Scholar community is a vibrant group of climate social science experts with academic backgrounds.

Spanning five continents, our scholars are the engine that drives our impact. Individually and through partnerships across the network, they advance our understanding of climate obstruction and climate change politics.

CSSN scholars take part in events, seminars and trainings. They collaborate on research and participate in our working groups. They also represent CSSN at international climate conferences, advise governments and legal / policy professionals, and serve as media experts.
