  About the Talk The emergence and resolution of global environmental problems constitutes one of the major challenges to humanity’s quest for security and justice. Through its concern for the relationships between these issues and traditional political issues, for the various roles that international actors play in their dynamics, for the bases of international cooperation, and for the interactions among international and national arrangements, global ecopolitics opens a window onto the very nature and foundations of contemporary international relations. In this talk, Prof. Philippe Le Prestre will discuss the need to go beyond the received wisdom of international environmental politics and on how a complex systems approach might help define the contours of a new model of international environmental governance. About the Speaker Philippe Le Prestre is Professor of Political Science at Laval University (Quebec, Canada), and in 2015-2016 was awarded the “International Francqui Professor” Chair of the Francqui Foundation (Belgium). Philippe Le Prestre holds a Ph.D. in Political Science from Indiana University (Bloomington, USA) as well as graduate degrees in Ecology from the Université Sorbonne Paris-Cité. A past chair of the Environmental Studies Section of the International Studies Association, he has been a member of numerous national and international scientific committees. Out of a dozen books on international environmental politics and international relations, Philippe Le Prestre is the author of The World Bank and the Environmental Challenge (Associated University Presses, 1989), Protection de l’environnement et relations internationales (Armand-Colin, 2005) and Global Ecopolitics Revisited (Routledge, 2017).
