Image
In this episode, we speak with Dr. Hayley Stevenson, Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science and International Relations at l’Universidad Torcuato Di Tella in Buenos Aires, and Dr. Simon Dalby, Professor at the Balsillie School of International Affairs, Wilfrid Laurier University. From defining the field of global ecopolitics to delving into the concept of environmental security (and calling 'bullshit' on the greenwashing policies in between), this wide-ranging conversation helps set the scene for Season 2 of The EcoPolitics Podcast.

Hayley Stevenson

Hayley Stevenson is Associate Professor of International Relations at the Universidad Torcuato Di Tella, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She is the author of Global Environmental Politics: Problems, Policy and Practice (Cambridge University Press, 2018), Democratizing Global Climate Governance (with John S. Dryzek, Cambridge University Press, 2014), and Institutionalizing Unsustainability: The Paradox of Global Climate Governance (University of California Press, 2013). Her research crosses the areas of global governance, global environmental politics, green political economy, and democratic theory. Two broad concerns motivate Hayley´s research. The first is the politics of unsustainability, including how governments design environmental policy and negotiate international agreements in ways that further lock in rather than transform unsustainable development. The second concern is the democratic quality of global environmental governance, which involves questioning which voices are represented in debate and decision-making; and how international organizations make themselves accountable to people affected by their policies and practices. Before moving to Buenos Aires in 2017, Hayley worked at the University of Sheffield (UK) and the Australian National University. She is also an editor of Political Studies, the flagship journal of the Political Studies Association in the UK, and a member of the editorial board of Environmental Politics.
