Course Description

Review how well global environmental solutions are coordinated by existing international regimes, big and small. Evaluate current proposals for new types of coordination. Short of formal coordination, study factors affecting voluntarily adoption of international environmental standards, in particular, success winning necessary cooperation from local communities. Acquire workable ideas of how international environmental policy could be made better—effective, economical, cooperative, and durable — as well as realistic political strategies for putting the preferred policies in place.

Grading Policy

Seven written exercises plus a 10-page paper. No exams. Value x Grade = Points. An exercise value of 1, 2, or 3 is multiplied by a grade of 1 (mostly inadequate), 2 (partly inadequate), 3 (adequate), 4 (partly superior), or 5 (mostly superior) to make 1 to 15 course points each.
