This course applies international relations theories and practices to global environmental issues. It introduces you to specialised international relations theories pertaining to the environment. It facilitates in-depth analysis of contemporary global environmental governance, such as the Paris Accord, and important security issues, including military security, human security, and economic development. This course is included in the International Relations major, but can be taken as an elective by any student with an interest in the intersection between politics and the environment in a globalising world.
