This concluding chapter takes stock of the earlier chapters. It focuses on the development of a future research agenda for sociological inquiry into the topic of climate change. It revisits the recent major initiatives, seeking to integrate the social sciences into the study of climate change, particularly the efforts of the International Social Science Council (ISSC), and shows how the sociological perspectives developed in this book can contribute to the ISSC’s effort. It also indicates how work presented in the prior chapters, which is typically not confined by a post-political perspective, represents an expanded perspective. It concludes with a discussion of the need for far more research, and efforts to demonstrate the value of sociological perspectives not only to the broader climate change and global environmental change community and relevant policymakers, but also to the rest of the sociological community.

Keywords:   post-political perspective, research agenda, policy-makers, sociological community
