The Ideal River: How control of nature shaped the international order

1:00pm to 1:00pm, Webinar, Joanne Yao

Environmental politics has traditionally been a peripheral concern for IR theory, but increasing alarm over global environmental challenges has elevated international society’s relationship with the natural world into the theoretical limelight (Eckersley 2004; O’Neill 2017; Forrester and Smith 2018; Falkner and Buzan 2019). IR theory’s engagement with environmental politics, however, has largely focused on interstate cooperation in the late-20th century with few works that explore the longstanding historical links between the management of natural resources and the foundations of the modern international order (for noted exceptions, see Scott 1998; Epstein 2008; Bowden 2009).
