Courses dealing mainly with the natural environment and ecology

This course will follow Naomi Klein's "This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate", Participants will take turns to present different chapters of the text and complementary ideas put forward by individuals such as Robin Hahnel and Murray Bookchin will also be explored. We will also discuss the ways in which international trade law trumps human rights and environmental concerns, and the mechanisms within the World Bank and private dispute settlement entities which facilitate this.  Additional materials for later sessions will be added as the course progresses, in part in tune with student desires, backgrounds, etc.
