A global overview of environmental issues raised by the new policies of the Earth by the best scholars in the field — philosophers, economists, sociologists, historians, engineers, political scientists and international relations experts. Read More
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.
