International Environmental Politics by Ronald B. Mitchell


International Environmental Politics by Ronald B. Mitchell

International environmental politics is an important component of both current scholarship in, and the curricula of, departments of international relations, international studies, and political science in the United States and around the world. These four volumes bring together the very strongest writings from the scholarly literature on the increasingly important topic of international environmental politics, selected from a diverse range of disciplines and publications. The collection sheds light on the political sources of global environmental problems, the processes by which states negotiate solutions to them, and the efforts of international institutions to address them. Part 1: Global environmental problems and their sources Part 2: International environmental agenda setting and policy formation Part 3: The effects of international environmental institutions Part 4: International environmental issues and international environmental debates
