STEPPS course for spring 2013: International Environmental Law & Policy

Looking for another STEPPS course next year?
Spaces are still available in MC/FW 450 (International Environmental Law and Policy)
Spring 2013, Tues/Thurs, 12:40-2:00pm
Daily reports suggest that Planet Earth faces a series of environmental threats, from climate change to biodiversity loss. So, what are governments doing to address these 21st Century challenges?
In this course, we will use a variety of resources — including treaty texts, news reports, and Skype meetings with UN conference participants — to compare how countries address global environmental challenges separately and in coordination with each other.
Who should take the course? Anyone:
– Interested in conservation or the environment
– Considering law or international policy work after graduation
– Interested in different countries’ approaches to global challenges
– Wanting to be an informed citizen on environmental matters

This course can be counted towards:
– James Madison College International Relations major (requirement in the International Political Economy & Global Governance)
– Fisheries & Wildlife major (requirement in the Conservation Biology concentration)
– College of Engineering Bioenergy concentration
– Science, Technology, Environment, and Public Policy Specialization
– Specialization in Latin American & Caribbean Studies
