Alexander Ovodenko, Politics department Ph.D., has been awarded the American Political Science Associations' Virginia Walsh Award for the best dissertation in Science, Technology, and Environmental Policy. From Alex's own website,
"My research analyzes environmental policy and international institutions. My book project explains the form of international environmental regulation. I explore patterns of regulation on global environmental issues (e.g., climate change, ozone layer depletion, mercury emissions, biodiversity) with different market concentrations. My collaborative research explores how the institutional landscape of international environmental cooperation shapes negotiated institutional settlements. It also examines business perspectives on environmental regulations and specific policy designs for promoting clean energy technology. My work has appeared in Review of Policy Research, International Affairs, Journal of Strategic Studies, and Security Studies."
