This book introduces readers to the field of international environmental politics (IEP) through authoritative and up-to-date surveys of its major approaches and debates. The book is divided into three parts. The chapters in Part I provide comprehensive and pluralistic reviews stressing the diversity of the field's origins, theories, and methods. The remaining chapters are organized around key research areas and allow readers to become broadly familiar with the theoretical and substantive debates that characterize
the field. In Part II, the authors review the theoretical and empirical trajectories of a given research area – international political economy, gender, knowledge, governance, transnational actors, and security – and present a short original case study to illuminate
the main debates that emerge. Part III reflects on four distinct frameworks for evaluating IEP: effectiveness, transparency, sustainability, and justice. Collectively, the authors demonstrate how the field of IEP has evolved and identify key questions, topics, and approaches to guide future research.
