Environmental Politics and Urban Governance

How to make urban environments more sustainable and resilient

In what sense are environmental issues social problems? We examine the intersections of social and environmental politics, focusing on a range of projects that are designed to enhance urban sustainability. We ask: how do different views of environment and technology converge or compete with one another in such projects? What factors account for the differences in the viewpoints of parties involved? What cultural and material changes result from collective effort to address environmental challenges? We aim to provide insight into urban and environmental governance by presenting in-depth case studies and by articulating the implications of those case studies for diverse social groups, such as policy makers, scientists, activists, and local communities.
