Course Outline

The course provides an overview of dominant and emerging trends in the theory and practice of environmental governance. The course addresses environmental issues as policy problems and explores how the environment is regulated, controlled, and contested by a range of actors and institutions. The course focuses on the spatial dimension of environmental change and uses key concepts from geography (scale, region, network) to advance regional environmental governance thinking.
