Joint Center in Copenhagen: Michael K. Dorsey

Dr. Michael K. Dorsey

Dr. Michael K. Dorsey, a visiting scholar with the Joint Center’s Climate Change Initiative, landed in Copenhagen on December 1. A professor of environmental studies at Dartmouth College, Dr. Dorsey and members of his Climate Justice Research Project plan to explore issues related to carbon finance and emerging carbon markets. Dr. Dorsey’s team will also conduct a survey of organizations attempting to influence the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UN FCCC).
“We hope to gain insights on the structure and design of emerging carbon markets,” said Dr. Dorsey. “If we want to secure just climate policies we must understand how key proposals, like carbon cap and trade, work to deliver justice or delay it.”
