About the course

With the adoption of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the United Nations in 2015, Sustainability has taken center stage in public policy debates at global, national and local levels. This class introduces and explores the concepts of social, economic and environmental sustainability. Climate change will serve as the core case study linking all three elements. We consider ethical foundations, indicators, tools for analyzing synergies and tradeoffs among different goals, and public policies and governance options for achieving sustainability. A particular focus is on the political economy of interactions between the state, business and NGOs, and on the dynamics between international and domestic levels of policymaking. The tools taught in this course are rooted mainly in economics and political science, but their application will be non-formal throughout. Note that this is not a class in development economics or Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
