Beschreibungen

This book examines cooperation on shared environmental concerns across national boundaries in the Southern Cone region of South America, specifically Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay. It covers regional environmental cooperation in the Southern Cone since the early 1990s. By using the marginalised issues of ecological and socio-environmental concerns as an analytical lens, the author makes a significant contribution to the study of regional cooperation in Latin America. Her book also presents the first detailed study of how environmental cooperation across national boundaries takes place in a region of the South, and thus fills a lacuna in global environmental governance. This innovative work is geared toward students and scholars of environmental politics, regional cooperation in Latin America, and transboundary environmental governance.

“This book fills an important gap in the study of environment and development. Regional environmental cooperation in the global South has expanded, but as it is less visible and different than in the North, it is much less studied and understood. Besides clarifying the nature and the dynamics of environmental cooperation in the case of the Southern Cone of South America, Karen Siegel offers valuable analytical tools and insights to this nascent field of inquiry. A useful and timely book for scholars of International Relations, International Development Studies, Environmental Politics and Latin American Studies.” (Barbara Hogenboom, Centre for Latin American Research and Documentation (CEDLA), University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands)
