The course offers an
investigation of environmental problems from the point of view of political
economy. Making use of an interpretative scheme based on the concept of
externalities, it explores the phenomena of environmental damage and the policy
instruments used to dealing with them. Topics such as sustainable development, environmental
taxation, economic valuation of externalities, renewable resources, Kyoto
Protocol and COP 21, environment and international trade are studied.
