Henrik SelinAssociate Professor of International Relations and Associate Dean for Studies at the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, has been appointed an Editor for the Global Environmental Politics journal, a quarterly peer-reviewed academic journal that examines the relationship between global political forces and environmental change.

Global Environmental Politics examines relationships between global political forces and environmental change, with particular attention given to the implications of local-global interactions for environmental management, as well as to the implications of environmental change and environmental governance for world politics. The journal seeks to publish on a broad range of issues, from water to waste management to climate change. Topics covered include, but are not limited to, states and non-state actors in environmental governance, multilateral institutions and agreements, innovative governance arrangements, trade, global finance, corporations and markets, environmental (in)security, science and technology, and transnational and grassroots movements.

Along with Selin, Global Environmental Politics also named Susan Park, Professor of Global Governance at the University of Sydney, and D.G. Webster, Associate Professor of Environmental Studies at Dartmouth College, editors of the journal.

“I’m honored and excited to have been chosen as a new Editor for the journal Global Environmental Politics together with D.G. Webster and Susan Park,” said Selin. “Global Environmental Politics is the flagship journal of the Environmental Studies Section of the International Studies Association. As the new editors build on the excellent work of previous sets of editors, we are looking to further enhance the standing of the journal and publish articles covering a broad set of issues in global environmental politics authored by leading scholars from all over the world.”
