The course studies examples from China and India, looking at the factors that shape processes of social inclusiveness and of the greening of the economy. Both China and India offer interesting perspectives on how rapidly developing countries, which have displayed high economic growth rates over the last decade, deal with environmental pollution and climate change on the one hand and with social inequality on the other. The seminar imparts the analytical skills needed to effectively research policies and politics related to inclusive low-carbon development. It reflects upon scientific literature on these issues and discusses adequate theoretical starting points for empirical research. Furthermore, students research the key facts and figures and conduct small illustrative case studies in order to identify influential factors in this field.
