How can scientific knowledge be translated into political change? Ozone Discourse examines the first global environment treaty, the Montreal Protocol and its subsequent revisions, which was a highly effective collaboration among scientists, policymakers and activists. The treaties were the work of a small group of experts who, without conventional political or economic resources, were able to persuade most of the world's nations to agree to reduce and then eliminate chlorofluorocarbons. These experts used their understanding of atmospheric science to supplement the policymakers' short-term perspective with a wider, intergenerational timeframe characteristic of global environmental problems. Litfin argues that the discipline of international relations requires a broader conception of power in order to accomodate the knowledge-based problems such as environmental degradation.

Product Description:

Analyzes the international ozone treaty-making process as a lens through which to comprehend the use of scientific knowledge as a political tool.

Review:

Litfin does a very good job of setting out the way in which scientific discourse was used by the two primary opponents in the negotiation of the Montreal Protocol: .... Liftin's argument... is convincing.--Alternatives
