Georgetown Journal of International Affairs
Summer/Fall 2020
Volume 21
Aaron Baum and Emily Dougherty, Editors
Climate—Change is Inevitable is the theme of the twenty-first edition of the Georgetown Journal of International Affairs. This issue confronts one of humanity's most consequential challenges head-on in pursuit of a better world. With insights from practitioners, experts, and academics from around the globe, this edition provides a full and robust picture of the intersecting impacts of climate change—from business to security to culture and beyond.

The Georgetown Journal of International Affairs (GJIA) is the flagship, peer-reviewed academic journal of the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University. GJIA goes beyond the headlines in identifying and discussing trends that will shape the world, pairing the foresight of students with the wisdom of accomplished thinkers. Each print edition provides readers with a diverse array of timely, peer-reviewed content that brings unique insight to the broader international relations dialogue. The Journal features a Forum section that offers focused analysis on the theme at hand, along with seven regular sections: Business and Economics, Conflict and Security, Human Rights and Development, Society and Culture, Dialogues, Global Governance, and Science and Technology.
Reviews
"This journal will not fly you from your chair to the front lines of climate change, but we hope that the voices represented can communicate some of what it means to be there."—Mark Giordano



"...Climate change is a threat multiplier, acting to exacerbate existing water-related risks that governments and communities are already struggling to adequately address. Given the inextricable interlinkages between water and climate, we must solve them simultaneously."—Cora Kammeyer, Ross Hamilton, and Jason Morrison



"Through such rituals honoring the sanctity of nature, my Pacific Island brethren and I learned early on that man-made climate change was the result of our negligence and greed."—Fale Andrew Lesa



"Resolving the zoonotic infectious disease crisis—and predicting, preventing, and responding to future outbreaks—will require action to address the root causes and incentives of wildlife trade."—Sharon Guynup, Chris R. Shepherd, and Loretta Shepherd



"As China shores up resources for its future, countries and institutions with the financial, technical, and political means have a responsibility to uphold environmental standards and sovereignty for those who cannot uphold it for themselves."—Greg Gershuny, Anny Giorgi, and Calli Obern
