Overview

Taking an institutional and behavioral approach to the study of environmental politics and policy, the authors examine the role of political institutions and investigate the connection between them and environmental policy making. They look at the evolution of environmental policy making and the national and subnational levels, political activism, electoral politics, the mass media and public opinion, the role of national political institutions, and the global environment. Their conclusions are unsurprising, finding that the concordance of activist presidents, a pro-environmental congress, and environmental activists from civil society are all necessary actors in changing governmental policy.
