Outline of Lecture Course

This lecture course consists of three parts: (1) environmental political thought, (2) comparative environmental politics, and (3) international environmental politics.
The first part introduces students to key concepts, ideas and ideologies in environmental politics.
The second part provides students with a basic understanding of key actors in environmental politics, such as NGOs and political parties, especially at the national level.
The third part introduces students to the international dimensions of environmental politics, such as the politics of international environmental cooperation.

Course Objectives Environmental problems are as political as they are scientific, economic, and aesthetic. For example, they present serious choices in decision-making, not only about what is to be done, but also about how it gets done.
