You will learn to apply core theoretical concepts in the research field of sustainability, civil society and transnational governance to help you analyse challenges to effective and legitimate governance linked to various environmental issues, as well as critically reviewing, presenting and discussing theories and literature within the research fields of sustainability, civil society and transnational governance. The course also includes the assessment of scientific, ethical and societal aspects related to environmental science and the analysis of governance in relation to the social, environmental and economic dimensions of sustainable development.
