Visiting Professor from Middlebury to teach Environmental Policy Course
Dr. Catherine Ashcraft, a Visiting Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies at Middlebury College, will teach IEPG: Negotiating International Freshwater Conflicts here at the Monterey Institute this spring semester.
This course will consider the complexity of water systems and their development, but will focus on the human dimensions of negotiating sustainable policies when people have different visions for how water should be used in the future. Ashcraft will draw from case studies from around the world and will use negotiation simulations developed with the Program on Negotiation at the Harvard Law School to help students develop their own negotiating and problem-solving skills.
Students may register for this course on Bannerweb.
