Environmental Governance

Bachelor course. Political Science. Spring term.
STVC55 - Environmental Governance (7,5 credits)

The aim of the course is to examine environmental change as a problem of governance. We scrutinize major governance dimensions - such as actors, institutions and problem structures - at multiple levels and across domains. This includes the interplay of government, market and civil society in efforts to mitigate and adapt to environmental change. 

The course critically approaches the changing institutional architecture of environmental governance, including the rise of alternative forms of governance beyond the state. Actors like regions, cities, international organizations, business, non-governmental organizations and social movements will be studied. Cases of environmental governance on various levels will be contrasted and compared, together with overlaps between environmental issues and other domains like trade and security. 

The course gives opportunity to reflect on these cases in relation to central political scientific concepts like democracy, justice, legitimacy and effectiveness.
