Summer Research Program in Washington: Exploring US Environmental Leadership
A team of four William and Mary students worked with Dr. Maria Ivanova in Washington, D.C. during the summer of 2008 to explain the periods of US leadership and withdrawal from global environmental governance over the past forty years. Students engaged in intensive research at the Library of Congress and the National Archives, conducted interviews with key policy figures, and participated in environmental policy events in the Washington area. By linking historical findings to contemporary debates, the team contributed to a platform for meaningful US reengagement in the international environmental debates of the 21st century
