Review quote

Environmental Conflict Management introduces students to the research and practice of environmental conflict, and provides a step-by-step process for engaging stakeholders and other interested parties in the management of environmental disputes. In each chapter, the authors introduce a specific concept or process step, and provide exercises, worksheets, role-plays, and brief case studies so students can directly apply what they are learning. -- Alexa Martinshow more
