Environmental Politics • Immense field of study, cross-cutting theme • Environmental Politics – The study of political theories and paradigms related to the environment – Investigating the positioning of parties – Environmental policy at multiple geopolitical levels (Neil Carter, 2009)

Environmental Politics – Not one definition of environmentalism: a wide variety of discursive fields and frames – Competing notions on what drives environmental degradation

Environmental Politics Robert Brulle: four standard approaches of understanding environmental politics 1.Changes in political opportunity structure 2.Movement activities 3.Development and promulgation of new cultural beliefs 4.Condition of the natural environment Handbook of Politics: State and Society in Global Perspective (2010) AvKevin T. Leicht,J. Craig Jenkins: pp. 385-405

Political Ecology Term coined by Frank Thone (1935) "Nature Rambling: We Fight for Grass," The Science Newsletter 27, 717, Jan. 5: 14 “Research has sought primarily to understand the political dynamics surrounding material and discursive struggles over the environment in the third world” Bryant 1998, p. 89.

Political Ecology • Humans are political animals and the use of natural resources is a political act in which people interact at different levels between which various power relations exist (Dietz, 1996). • Political ecology calls for a greater emphasis of study on local power dynamics on common-pool resources and the environment (McCay, 2002; Dietz, 1996).

Political Ecology Political ecology is an area of social research investigating the environmental dimensions to armed and unarmed conflicts. A basic research question in political ecology looks at who plays a role in resource extraction and maintenance in an environment where people interact at different levels between which various power relations exist (Dietz, 1996).

Political Ecology Political ecology: “the study of the relationships between political, economic and social factors with environmental issues and changes. Political ecology differs from apolitical ecological studies by politicizing environmental issues and phenomena” (Wikipedia)

What’s wrong with? “Man and the environment”
