Transparency is a hot issue in global environmental governance. In a new book, just published by MIT Press, Aarti Gupta, Associate Professor at the Environmental Policy Group, explores whether and how transparency enables new types of politics in global environmental governance.
The book, Transparency in Global Environmental Governance: Critical Perspectives, co-edited with Michael Mason, analyses the nature and implications of a ‘transparency turn’ in global environmental and sustainability governance, by investigating international agreements, voluntary disclosure initiatives and public private partnerships wherein transparency plays a key role. It covers a range of global environmental issues, including climate change, biodiversity, biotechnology, chemicals, natural resource exploitation, and corporate sustainability performance.
