In this seminar, Prof. Park discusses current carbon-neutral policies at the global level, from international relations and public policy perspectives. The talk will focus on the questions of 'how multilateral environmental policy concerning pollution and climate issues should be designed'; 'what are the main barriers to further implementation of the available policy tools'; and 'what possible strategies would be to overcome the barriers?'. In the context of Northeast Asia, the talk will also explore how far regional-level environmental cooperation is achievable.


Prof. Park holds a doctorate from the London School of Economics and Political Science. Her research interests include environmental movements and politics, international development aid, regionalism and cooperation of Northeast Asia, and comparative politics of Japan and Korea.
