COMPARING CLIMATE CHANGE POLICY NETWORKS (COMPON) PROJECT

This project aims to explore transnational comparisons of national policy responses to global climate change focusing on the role of social and advocacy networks. Funded by a grant from the Human and Social Dynamics Program of the National Science Foundation, I directed the US case study for this project. We are currently writing up findings from this project.
