The International Studies Association is proud to announce that Peter Dauvergne, Professor of International Relations at the University of British Columbia (UBC) and founding and former editor of the journal Global Environmental Politics has been named the 2016 recipient of the Environmental Studies Section (ESS) Distinguished Scholar Award.
Dauvergne is a seminal scholar of global environmental politics who has sought to unpack the unseen and complex political and economic forces that link global markets, civil society and international actors with global environmental change. Through his 13 books and over 80 peer-reviewed articles—covering subjects from eco-consumerism and deforestation to patronage networks, corporatization and the dynamics of social protest—Dauvergne has shaped the study and teaching of global environmental politics at the intersection of international relations and environmental studies.
