- How well have Southeast Asian societies responded to climate-related crises in the twentieth century?
- Did they learn from past crises? (That is, how much adaptive capacity was there?)
- How can we explain variance in their responses and adaptive capacities across Southeast Asia?
- What does this tell us about likely responses to such crises in the twenty-first century?
- How can these questions be most fruitfully investigated?
Organisers invite scholars of/from Southeast Asia interested in developing an empirical understanding of climate change-related adaptive capacities in the real, historical world.
Participants will seek to develop ideas leading to a common approach, with a view to future research collaboration.
The laboratory will be interesting to historians, anthropologists, and political scientists, and to natural scientists interested in collaborating with them on policy issues.
