Alternative Governance & climate Change
This project explores the dynamics of nonstate actors as governors over issues related to environmental hazard and climate change.
This project answers key questions about how different actors contribute to or impede climate governance (from long-term challenges to crisis response), how these actors compete or cooperate as governors, how these connections impact actors’ legitimacy and authority, and how civilians interact with them and attribute responsibility (negatively or positively) for climate hazard management. It examines governance related to both slow-moving and rapid environmental hazards.
