Join GSC BPhil candidate, Anna Coleman, as she defends her thesis to her defense committee. Past research on the environmental movement has demonstrated the pragmatic approach environmental groups take in their engagement with international governance organizations (IGOs). Coleman's research contributes to a discussion of what motivates this pragmatism, with a particular focus on what these types of relationships provide environmental groups and what these relationships may suggest about the future of international climate action. Drawing from updated data on the behavior of environmental social movements, she suggest that the scope of a TSMO’s focus influences their need for connections with other actors, including both other TSMOs and IGOs.
