ASPO 1425A - International Environmental Politics

Type d'enseignement : Seminar

Semester : Spring 2017-2018

Number of hours : 35

Language of tuition : English



Course Description

This intensive course presents one of the most dynamic areas of international relations. It touches upon issues that are central to contemporary politics such as climate change and sustainable development. Environmental protection is traditionally considered as low politics. This greatly facilitated international cooperation in this sector and has given scholars unprecedented access to sources, which makes international environmental politics one of the most fertile subfields of international relations theory. This course alternates lectures, case studies, and discussions around the most significant contributions to the subfield. Lectures will focus on the analysis of multilateral environmental agreements and on the role of experts and environmental NGOs, while the case studies will feature assessments of Rio+20 and of the 2009 Climate Conference in Copenhagen.
