As part of my postdoctoral research fellowship this year at the University of Michigan's Ford School of Public Policy, I'm helping to organize a series of webinars on climate and energy policy within and across the three North American countries. This is part of an ongoing collaboration between the Ford School and two partner institutions -- the University of Toronto's Munk School (in Canada) and the National Autonomous University of Mexico's Center for North American Research (in Mexico) -- known as the North American Colloquium (NAC).
Last Thursday, we launched the series with a talk by Professor Douglas Macdonald, Senior Lecturer Emeritus at the University of Toronto. Professor Macdonald discussed his new book, Carbon Province, Hydro Province, about the challenges of Canadian climate and energy federalism.
Here is the link to his talk.
Coming up next, on December 9, we move south from Canada, to the United States. I will join Barry Rabe for a conversation about his brand new (just released) book, Trump, The Administrative Presidency, and Federalism, as well as my own ongoing research on the politics of state-level climate and energy policy.
