Environmental Policy and Globalization
Students will explore the complex concept of globalization, its history and global impacts, to develop a working definition. From that, students will examine the institutional structures, economic drivers, cultural, ethical and political implications of globalization through the lens of environmental issues. Environmental policies, politics and the role of international institutions and multinational corporations will be investigated as they contribute to environmental degradation or sustainability. Antiglobalization and counter movements will also be considered.
