Climate change is one of the most pressing global challenges of our generation. This junior seminar investigates the political dimensions of that challenge. Over the course of the semester we will explore a number of key questions, such as: Why is it so challenging for nations to cooperate on climate change? Why are some governments more climate-friendly than others? What leads firms and individuals to be more or less supportive of green policies? What are possible solutions to the problem? And, finally, which of these solutions shows the most promise?
Junior seminars fulfill upper division requirements for the major.
