About this book

Few serious scholars or policymakers believe that the connection between environmental problems and International Relations (IR) can be ignored. The need to explore the links between ecological crises and global politics is commonly conceded. However, while environmental issues have been on the IR agenda for over two decades, many researchers proceed without a clear theoretical map to guide their efforts. Similarly, ecological thinkers are often accused of missing the bigger picture presented by the complexity of IR. This important volume aims to synthesize these two interrelated branches of study within international ecopolitical theory.

"International Ecopolitical Theory" assembles some of the top thinkers in the field to provide an invaluable overview of the main critical approaches to global environmental politics. Guided by questions of how to better understand the ecological predicaments of our time and the global dimensions of the environmental policy questions they raise, this book is a major contribution to fostering a new approach to IR and ecological theory.
