Collapse of the USSR and the Socialist bloc can be legitimately described as one of the most astounding developments of last decade of the 20th century.
As early as the midth century, there were scholars writing about the role of natural resources in global security and political economy. However, much of the literature prior to the s related specifically to resource extraction and development issues. It was only in the s and into the s that global environmental politics began to establish itself as a distinct field with its own dedicated journals and publishers, and the focus of study expanded to include global environmental problems such as ozone depletion, climate change, biodiversity loss, deforestation, and desertification.
It has emerged as a center of interdisciplinary work that integrates research from a range of fields including geography, economics, history, law, biology, and numerous others. The interdisciplinary approach makes it difficult to define the boundaries in this rather immense field of study.
The focus in this entry will be on global environmental politics research that falls primarily within the larger field of international relations.
Global environmental problems present many unique challenges and have thus spawned a range of subfields of study. Global environmental problems frequently involve substantial scientific complexity and ambiguity.
This has produced a wide-ranging scholarship on the relationships between science and policy. The very long timeframes of both the consequences of environmental problems as well as the efforts to address them create a number of governance challenges given the much shorter political timeframes of politicians and diplomats.
In addition, because environmental problems typically do not respect borders, they pose challenges for international cooperation, which has thus produced a growing literature on global environmental governance.
The widespread potential for massive economic, political, and ecological dislocation from the consequences of global environmental problems as well as from the potential policies to address those problems have led scholars to study global environmental politics from every paradigm within international relations as well as drawing on research in numerous other disciplines.
Finally, efforts to address the consequences of environmental problems have produced controversial ethical and distributive-justice questions that have produced an important philosophical literature within global environmental politics.
Global environmental politics has thus emerged as a very rich and diverse area of scholarship. General Overviews As the field of global environmental politics has matured, an increasing number of scholars have sought to map the contours of the field and offer histories of the evolution of scholarship.
The Hurrell and Kingsbury and Choucri edited volumes provide good reviews of the state of the field in the early s as global environmental politics first began to emerge as a distinct field of study.
