International Environmental Policy
EAS 563 uses a case study approach to introduce SEAS MS students to international environmental governance. It focuses on five key actors of environmental governance in an international context: national governments and their agencies, non-government organizations, donors, local populations, and corporations. Students will read and analyze a series of case studies as a means to learn about major governance issues and concepts and will identify key recommendations for decision-makers. The instructor appointed for this course will assist with the identification and finalization of case studies of governance (15%), case analysis (15%), application of an analytical framework focusing on actors, interests/objectives, options, criteria, and recommendations (20%), grading (20%) and discussion sections (30%). Familiarity with the case method and international governance issues is a plus.
