Prerequisites: One (1) lower-division international relations course Download Syllabus

This course will be a study and examination of contemporary global environmental politics. We will examine global environmental politics in the framework of international politics. We will start with the concepts of politics, international politics, state, state sovereignty, international law, and the complex nature of global environmental politics. What does international anarchy mean in the contemporary world and what are the implications for global environmental politics and the future of humanity? More importantly, we will examine how the global north and global south see the global environmental politics. Who is responsible for the status quo of the global environmental crisis? How does the green revolution technology impact global environmental conditions? How does population growth in the global south and over-consumption in the global north contribute differently to our environmental crisis? Finally, we will discuss the possible solutions to our environmental crisis.
