Inaugural Conference on Environmental Diplomacy and Security 10/2011

Registration page for Conference is linked here October 21 – 23, 2011 Environmental issues are often framed as a source of conflict in terms of resource scarcity. Yet they tend to be relegated as “low politics,” in the larger scheme of international relations. This conference aims to consider ways by which environmental issues can be raised to “high politics of war and peace” to ensure ecological, economic and social sustainability. The conference is the inaugural event of a new research and practice center on the emerging discipline of environmental diplomacy and security at the University of Vermont.
