My research agenda addresses environmental politics and policy primarily in a North American context. I have a particular interest in the politics of climate change, urban design and most recently the prospect for a global citizen's movement addressing both environmental issues and social equity. I have several recent book chapters on U.S. and Canadian climate change policy. I am also interested in the history of the environmental movement in both Canada and the United States and the influence of that movement on the policy process. I am also working on the environmental dimensions of foreign policy following from the book Democracy's Dilemma (MIT Press, 2004) which addressed globalization and sustainability.
