Editorial Information

Global Environmental Politics examines relationships between global political forces and environmental change, with particular attention given to the implications of local-global interactions for environmental management, as well as to the implications of environmental change and environmental governance for world politics. Each issue contains several full-length research articles, and may also contain shorter forum articles and/or a research note. The journal seeks to publish on a broad range of issues, from water to waste management to climate change. Topics covered include, but are not limited to, states and non-state actors in environmental governance, multilateral institutions and agreements, innovative governance arrangements, trade, global finance, corporations and markets, environmental (in)security, science and technology, and transnational and grassroots movements. Contributions come from many disciplines, including political science, international relations, sociology, history, human geography, anthropology, public policy, science and technology studies, and environmental ethics, law, and economics.
