PPOL 235
Environmental Policy Analysis

This course is a reading seminar exploring political responses to environmental problems. Students will examine the social and cultural origins of attitudes toward the exploitation and conservation of natural resources, and the institutional structures that shape public policy in this field. American and international case studies will be considered in comparing the effects of ecological crises and policies on different populations and in applying alternative analytical approaches such as political ecology and environmental impact assessment.
