  3. Environmental Governance in Europe

    Environmental Governance in Europe

    Rüdiger K.W. Wurzel, Anthony R. Zito, Andrew J. Jordan
    European governance has witnessed dramatic changes in recent decades. By assessing the use of ‘new’ environmental policy instruments in European Union countries including the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands and Austria, this timely book analyses whether traditional forms of top-down government have given way to less hierarchical governance instruments, which rely strongly on societal self-steering and/or market forces. The authors provide important new theoretical insights as well as fresh empirical detail on why, and in what form, these instruments are being adopted within and across different levels of governance, along with analysis of the often-overlooked interactions between the instrument types.

    Environmental Justice and Federalism

    Dennis C. Cory, Tauhidur Rahman, Satheesh Aradhyula, Melissa Anne Burns, Miles H. Kiger
    The authors discuss two case studies in their investigation of the complex interactions between environmental justice and government.

    Edited by James Meadowcroft, Oluf Langhelle, Audun Ruud

The book concludes with an essay by William Lafferty that explores the flawed character of the contemporary democratic polity and offers his reflections on possible pathways to reform. Learn More

  8. The Politics of Environmental Policy in Russia

    The Politics of Environmental Policy in Russia

    David Feldman, Ivan Blokov
    The authors, renowned experts in the field, explore efforts to develop a mature civil society in Russia, and analyse the policy views of environmental groups, the media, and the scientific community. Three important case studies underpin the study: suspended plans to build an oil pipeline near Lake Baikal; management of Cold War-generated radioactive waste at Chelyabinsk; and public reaction to the introduction of genetically modified foods. The conclusion is that although civil society groups face obstacles in the form of apathy, state-imposed constraints on their activities, and agency reluctance to confer on decisions, there are some successes in reversing decisions due in part to NGO pressures yielding reform.

  14. Making Fishery Agreements Work

    Making Fishery Agreements Work

    Geir Hønneland
    Why do people obey the law? And why do states abide by their international commitments? These are among the questions raised in this important book. The setting is the Barents Sea, home to some of the most productive fishing grounds on the planet, including the world’s largest cod stock. Norway and Russia manage these fish resources together, in what appears to be a successful exception to the rule of failed fisheries management: stocks are in good shape, institutional cooperation is expanding and takes place in a constructive atmosphere. The author argues that post-agreement bargaining helps activate norms and establish standard operating procedure that furthers precautionary fisheries management. Learn More

  16. Climate Change and Human Security

    Climate Change and Human Security

    Michael R. Redclift, David Manuel-Navarette, Mark Pelling
    The challenge presented by climate change is, by its nature, global. The populations of the Mexican Caribbean, the focus of this book, are faced by everyday decisions not unlike those in the urban North. The difference is that for the people of the Mexican Caribbean evidence of the effects of climate change, including hurricanes, is very familiar to them. This important study documents the choices and risks of people who are powerless to change the economic development model which is itself forcing climate change. Learn More

  20. The International Politics of Climate Change

    The International Politics of Climate Change

    Edited by Aynsley Kellow, Sonja Boehmer-Christiansen
    This highly topical collection, edited by two accomplished academics, explores how environmental science and energy policy relate to international politics and policy. This complex and essentially interdisciplinary subject has been the core about which academics have fiercely debated and, as yet, unsuccessfully reached satisfactory negotiations. The editors interpret the politics of climate change as being driven less by scientific understanding than by disguised interests and deeply believed norms. The carefully selected papers in this volume both analyse and advocate policies that claim to be directed towards ‘combating man-made global warming’ and hence ‘save the planet’. Learn More
