Center for Environmental Politics -- Duck Family Graduate Workshop 2022

Wednesday, May 18, 2022 - 8:30pm to Friday, May 20, 2022 - 4:45pm

May 18-20, 2022, University of Washington’s Center for Environmental Politics will organize the 8th annual Duck Family Graduate Workshop for doctoral students working in the area of environmental politics and governance (EPG).  This follows on the successful workshops that the Center hosted in previous years. Our plan is to organize the workshop in person in Seattle. However, if the COVID-19 situation does not stabilize, we will work with the online format.

Why the workshop? Understanding the governance and political aspects of environmental issues is critical for addressing the gamut of environmental challenges. The politics of governance perhaps has become an even more critical factor in the changed political milieu. The multi-disciplinary nature of EPG research often makes it hard to share ideas, concepts, and research methods across relevant disciplines. We hope the annual Duck Family Graduate Workshop will help overcome these barriers and provide a multi-disciplinary venue for doctoral students to become active participants in the community of EPG scholars. It will also provide a venue for doctoral students to network with others working on similar issues.
