INTL 3930 Seminar:Selected Topics in International Studies (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

The Political Economy of Global Climate Change: Global climate change is one of this century's most pressing challenges and affects virtually all countries. Responding to it effectively will require both government action and properly aligned market incentives. Thus, understanding international political economy is crucial to understanding the collective response to this threat. Moreover, societies' responses to that challenge are, and will continue to be, shaped by economic and political dynamics. This course examines those dynamics and addresses how civil society activists and businesses influence states' environmental policies and how states' climate change policies interact with each other. It also investigates states' different policy options and what the political economy implications of those policies are.
