Can new modes of governance, such as public-private partnerships, stakeholder consultations and networks, promote effective environmental policy performance as well as increase deliberative and participatory quality? This book argues that in academic inquiry and policy practice there has been a deliberative turn, manifested in a revitalized interest in deliberative democracy coupled with calls for novel forms of public-private governance. By linking theory and practice, the contributors critically examine the legitimacy and effectiveness of new modes of governance, using case studies on climate, forestry, water and food safety policies from the local to the global level. Environmental Politics and Deliberative Democracy will appeal to scholars, both advanced undergraduate and postgraduate, as well as researchers of environmental politics, international relations, environmental studies and political science. It will also interest practitioners involved in the actual design and implementation of new governance modes in areas of sustainable development, food safety, forestry and climate change.
