Spring. Next offered 2017-2018. 4 credits.

M. Jones-Correa.

An interdisciplinary seminar focusing on the political response to “slow-moving policy crises” such as population growth/change (aging, immigration), water availability and global warming. Each of these areas involves a policy area where the need for policy coordination is clear but the pressures for coordination are not, since the consequences of policy action or inaction may be felt only years down the road, and the assessment of the risk posed by these threats is highly contested. How do politicians/societies successfully face up to the risks posed by slow-moving crises?
