Global Issues. The environment

Now that we have entered the Anthropocene era, and humans have become the planet's main drivers of change, international relations and global governance can no longer be considered independently of environmental issues. Climate change, ozone depletion, biodiversity loss, rising sea levels... most environmental problems transcend national borders. Addressing them requires going beyond the framework of the State; likewise, the consequences of these issues — human migration, competition for natural resources, conflict — profoundly affect inter-State relations.

Scientifically coordinated by François Gemenne, this volume of Global Stakes (Enjeu mondial) reveals the rich diversity of research on international relations and environmental policy in the French-speaking academic sphere.

Bringing together contributions from the best scholars in the field — philosophers, economists, sociologists, historians, engineers, political scientists and international relations experts — this volume presents a global overview of environmental issues in four different sections: foundations, resources, policies and effects.

Contributions:

Penser l'Anthropocène
Conceptualising the Anthropocene
Rémi Beau, Catherine Larrère
This book paves the way for discussion on alternative ways of living on earth, as improbable as they may seem, and in so doing, demonstrates that the future is not merely the linear prolongation of the present.



Gouverner la décroissance
¨Politiques de l'anthropocène III
Governing degrowth
Politics of the anthropocene III
Agnès Sinaï, Mathilde Szuba
Can degrowth become a realistic alternative political model ? Governing growth rather than submitting to it : a new political history can be written, one in which the perspectives available are not only those of crisis but also those of creativity.
