Environmental Security and Governance
Our M.A. Programme in Environmental Security and Governance (ESG) is designed for those wishing to participate in environmental policy design at regional, national, and/or international levels. It pursues a comprehensive understanding of the complex interconnections among Global Environmental Change, peace, and conflict, and how these interconnections are addressed by policy makers in a variety of arenas.
Emphasis is placed on the design of policies that reduce the threats to peace arising from environmental degradation, growing competition for natural resources, and climate change as well as methods for enhancing adaptive capacity and resilience in fragile ecosystems. Graduates possess the requisite skills and knowledge to work in international institutions, government agencies, nongovernmental organizations, and private sector firms engaged in environmental and development policy formulation, as well as to pursue advanced academic study in the social science of environmental governance.
The Programme involves two semesters of graduate coursework followed by completion of a thesis or internship tailored to the student’s specific interests.
