Dr. Laura Bullon-Cassis works on youth and future generations’ involvement in local and global governance, with a focus on tracing institutional responses to climate justice movements. She draws on postcolonial, feminist, and anti-racist literature to analyse how the social category of “youth” operates in policy spaces along gendered and racial lines.
At CSER, she will participate in a workshop on climate activism as well as in broader discussions around youth movements and climate justice. She has first-hand exposure to multilateral fora through her work with the United Nations, and, as a Team Leader and Writer for the International Institute for Sustainable Development’s (IISD) Reporting Services, continues to attend UN environmental conferences worldwide.
Laura received her PhD (with Distinction) from the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication of New York University in 2022. She holds an MSc in Global Politics and a BSc in Sociology from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
