When businesses, environmentalists, and the general public differ in their concepts of sustainability, government must wrestle with the challenges of coherent policy development. This course uses readings and case studies to examine the strategies these groups employ to influence government action, whether through lobbying and green advertising or through their own definition of concepts such as sustainable development. Students will also analyze how governments balance differing concepts of sustainability through negotiated adaptation, regulation, and voluntary codes.
