Course Outline

・This course aims at providing a basic framework to understand "international environmental rules" between states that apply to global environmental problems. But beyond international law, the course is designed to understand various "global environmental governance mechanisms" that address environmental problems.

・To this end, the course will be organized as follows: 1.for the first few weeks, to consider the fundamental institutional design (actors, regulatory tools, implementation methods) to tackle global environmental problems; 2. then, to discuss different examples of global environmental problems; and 3. lastly, to get to know fieldwork skills and methods that can be used when interviewing various actors regarding global environmental issues. 

Course Objectives By the end of this course, students will be able to understand a variety of actors and approaches related to solving environmental problems and explore possibilities of tackling the problems.
