Program PhD Workshop “Environmental Politics”, April 04-05, 2019
Environmental politics is not only an increasingly urgent matter in the face of global environmental threats, but also a growing field of study that critically examines power and institutions in decision-making processes with respect to allocation and management of natural resources. A political prism has been found to be a powerful tool in explaining policy processes, design, and outcomes with respect to allocation and protection of resources, such as air, water and energy.
This PhD workshop explored questions related to the politics and conflicts that emerge around environmental issues and natural resources. The topics covered in the workshop included a diversity of questions including the factors that drive disputes over environmental issues; the political behaviors that actors undertake to influence political outcomes such as coalition building, narrative framing contests, lobbying; the negotiation or collaboration strategies that are used to address political debates, and determinants of policy choice.
