Course Outline Course Outline 
Description The course examines how national and international politics affects the success (and failure) of environmental policies. Since environmental policy is shaped in political arenas by a myriad of social and economic forces combined with observations of the natural world, the course content examine environmental issues with more of an inter-disciplinary approach. Students will gain an intellectually more mature understanding of how environmental policy is made, modified and implemented (or not) in response to political demands that often ignore the scientific realities of the environment.
