Tipping points are an emerging concept in climate change research and communication. However, previous research has strongly focussed on tipping points in biophysical systems, which left the potential for climate change induced socio-economic tipping points (SETPs) mostly unexplored. The objective of this thesis is to identify and assesses SETPs in order to support decision making on climate policy.
