Professor Bartlett teaches courses in US environmental politics, comparative environmental politics, international environmental governance, and policy analysis. His current research focuses on environmental democracy, namely, the applicability of theories of deliberative democracy to environmental policy and politics and, in turn, the implications of practical policy considerations for theorizing about deliberative democracy. His main current project is on democracy, earth system governance, and the Anthropocene. He has twice been a Senior Fulbright Scholar (New Zealand and Ireland). In spring 2007 he was the Distinguished Fulbright Chair of Environmental Policies at the Turin Polytechnic Institute and University in Italy. He has published many articles and ten books, including:
- (With Walter F. Baber) Consensus and Global Environmental Governance: Deliberative Democracy in Nature's Regime. Cambridge, MA: The MIT Press, 2015.
- (With Debashish Munshi and Priya Kurian) "Sustainable Citizenship for a Technological World: Negotiating Deliberative Dialectics," Citizenship Studies 18 (3-4, 2014): 435-451.
