JSGS-868: Resource and Environmental Policy
Description: An examination of recent trends in resource-related environmental policy focusing on the impact of global markets and international institutions on domestic policy options.
This course is divided into two parts. The first focuses on the new context of resource and environmental policy making in North America, including governance shifts at both national and international levels; changing public expectations about resource exploitation and environmental protection; and the contested role of different kinds of knowledge in resource and environmental policy. The second part of the course examines the policy regimes in place for different resources and assesses their performance and prospects. All types of resources will be discussed in the course but environmental issues will be restricted to those raised by resource extraction and use
