Graduate Workshop in Environmental Politics & Governance

Graduate Workshop in Environmental Politics & Governance

On May 15-16, 2018, the University of Washington Center for Environmental Politics will host the 4th annual Duck Family Graduate Workshop for doctoral students working in Environmental Politics and Governance (EPG). This highly successful workshop was previously hosted by the Center for Environmental Politics in 2015, 2016, and 2017.

Understanding the governance and political aspects of environmental issues is critical to addressing the suite of environmental challenges that researchers face today. The interdisciplinary nature of EPG research often makes it hard to share ideas, concepts, and research methods across relevant disciplines.  Thus, the annual Duck Family EPG Graduate workshop provides a venue for doctoral students to present their work, receive feedback, and network with other working on similar issues.
