February 25, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST
Politics of Pipelines
This is a series of (virtual) conversations with policymakers and scholars from Canada, the United States, and Mexico, on climate and energy policy, intergovernmental relations, transnational collaboration and conflict, and the future of North American climate policy.
Join leading scholars to discuss the politics associated with oil and gas pipeline construction in Canada and the United States. André Lecours (University of Ottawa) and Daniel Béland (McGill University) will present findings from their paper, “Federalism and the Politics of Oil and Gas Pipelines in Canada and the United States.” Amy Janzwood (University of British Columbia) and Kate J. Neville (University of Toronto) will present findings from their paper (co-authored with Sarah Martin of Memorial University of Newfoundland), “Pipeline Purgatory and the Social Construction of Commercial Viability.” These presentations will be followed by a discussion featuring questions from audience members.
