The Environmental Politics Research Group established in 2010 is aimed at enhancing collaborative work among colleagues in POLSIS working on environmental politics and policy, as well as disseminating research in this field outside the university.
We welcome research students with an interest in environmental politics to join the group. The group will hold regular meetings between members for the exchange of ideas and constructive feedback on work in progress, as well as organise outside speakers and workshops / seminars on topics of interest.
A first project of the Environmental Politics group is an exploration of the relationship between energy security and climate policy within and between states, focusing particularly on the articulation of interests in domestic policy and the importance of North-South issues on climate policy and energy security.
Research interests of current members include:
Environmental Economics and Policies
The Global Politics of Climate Change
International Environmental Governance and Institutions
Effectiveness of Environmental Institutions and Policies
Climate Change Negotiations
