Sophia Kalantzakos is Global Distinguished Professor in Environmental Studies and Public Policy at  New York University Abu Dhabi. This academic year 2019-2020 she will be a Fung Global Fellow at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies. Her most recent books include China and the Geopolitics of Rare Earths (Oxford University Press, 2018) and The EU, US, and China Tackling Climate Change: Polices and Alliances for the Anthropocene (Routledge, 2017). Her interdisciplinary research focuses on environmental governance, public policy and geopolitics, especially resource competition and climate change as threats that are reshaping power politics across the globe. She heads eARThumanities, the Environmental Humanities Research Initiative at NYU Abu Dhabi. During her time as a Fung Fellow, Kalantzakos will examine how China’s rise, its vision for the Belt and Road Initiative, shifting power relations, and the land and maritime “re-unification” of Eurasia and Africa have begun to reshape global institutions, norms, and governance structures in a way that provokes a renewed intellectual debate over global relations and exchanges.
