Dr Angel Hsu
Angel Hsu is Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies at Yale-NUS College in Singapore and Adjunct Professor at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, USA. For the duration of her Visiting Fellowship she is hosted by the University of Oxford.
Dr Hsu's Visiting Fellowship will enable her to deepen understanding of how non-state and sub-national actors are contributing to overall climate policy in China.
There is a dearth of information regarding which non-state and sub-national entities are taking action, what kinds of efforts are occurring (eg, mitigation, adaptation or financing), and how these actions complement or compete with national policies and transnational networks.
By developing a research roadmap that involves collecting and analysing primary, micro-level data on non-state and sub-national climate actions in China, this work can determine which contextual factors shape transnational climate governance outcomes with the aim of increasing the overall ambition of climate change action.
We foster international collaboration in the humanities and social sciences, and promote the sharing of international perspectives on global challenges.
