POL 380 - Environmental Politics

After the ideological wars of the 20th century, environmental issues today increasingly determine politics. From global warming to pollution to the militaristic competition over diminishing resources, ecology has critical implications for domestic and foreign policy alike. This course examines the interaction of politics and the environment on a local, national, and global scale. It will consider the environmental impact of specific policies and the response of state, non-state and intergovernmental actors. Satisfies the Social Science core requirement.
