wöchentlich | Donnerstag | 14:15 - 17:45 | 18.10.2021 - 04.02.2022 | C 12.013 Seminarraum

Inhalt: This course provides an introduction to environmental and sustainability governance. It offers basic knowledge on the functioning of governance systems in providing and implementing public policies addressing current environmental and sustainability issues – on local, national and international levels, with a focus on global environmental and sustainability issues and governance. We will address both the structure and process features of governance. Topics covered include the governance of commons; participatory and collaborative governance; the use of evidence-informed policy-making; adaptive governance and learning; multi-level governance; risk governance; policy coherence and policy-mixes; international regimes (e.g. climate, biodiversity); telecoupling; policy and institutional change. Students will learn the general core governance theories and concepts and apply them to emblematic case studies in the realm of environment and sustainable development. Class sessions include lecturer input, student input on selected exemplary (case) studies, a role-play simulation game, and joint class discussions. They require an intensive engagement with the respective key texts.
