Environmental Politics in Eurasia

April 18, 2012 // 3:30pm5:30pm

Laura Henry, John F. and Dorothy H. Magee Associate Professor of Government, Bowdoin College, examines forest conservation and climate change issues in her research on Russia's environmental policy. How does global environmental governance influence environmental protection in Russia? Does transnational engagement alter Russia's approach to environmental problems and solutions? Do global efforts connect with local, grassroots environmental activism within Russia?  Which strategies are most effective? 

Amanda Wooden, Assistant Professor of Environmental Politics & Policy, Environmental Studies Program, Bucknell University, discusses her work on the understudied issue of protest politics and the environment in Central Asia.  The results of a nationwide public opinion survey and interviews conducted in Kyrgyzstan from 2009-2011 will be presented.  This research sheds light on the unique and universal characteristics of environmental politics in Kyrgyzstan, and provides insight into governance and instability in the country more broadly.
