Research Question

Berman, the 2014-15 Center for Global Studies Nielson Scholarship Recipient, co-authored a paper titled Evolving Natural Resource Insecurities: Evaluating the Energy-Climate Nexus with Dr. Jean Garrison for the Western Political Science Association Conference in April 2015. This paper examines the politics of scarcity in key natural resources as a starting point to analyze the politics surrounding how environmental security challenges, from local to global contexts, are addressed. This paper situates energy and environmental security within the classic security debate to see how different problems are defined and framed and how this influences policy choices.

Significance

This paper seeks to offer alternative perspectives by which to examine the continued intractability surrounding environmental policy choices that address contemporary environmental challenges, particularly on the global scale.

Methods Used

Research methods entailed conducting literature reviews and synthesizing varying ideas surrounding environmental policy challenges.

Conclusions/Outcomes

This paper is still in a draft form.
