Cultural Politics

Cultural Politics in a Global Age: Uncertainty, Solidarity, and Innovation

Edited by David Held and Henrietta L. Moore

"This is a broad and authoritative book, which puts together philosophy, politics, economy and technology. Much more than a loose collection of articles, the book expresses a coherent point of view: cosmopolitan in outlook but attentive to local differences and specific cultural practices. Held and Moore have produced a benchmark book in the analysis of cultural politics."

An increase in temperature and a decrease in precipitation will have particular impact on the electricity sector - a higher cooling demand in summer and increased consumption for electricity. Rising sea levels and water scarcity in Lebanon could lead to internal climate migration and mass displacement from rural to coastal regions affecting agricultural output, jobs and livelihoods. The economic situation in the cities that are already prone to poverty, illiteracy and unemployment could become worse.
