De quoi parle-t-on lorsque l’on parle d’environnement ? Existe-t-il une crise écologique ? L’environnement se résume-t-il à la pollution ? Est-on vraiment fondé à parler de risques environnementaux ? L’environnement a-t-il affaire à la politique et si oui pourquoi ? Pourquoi et à partir de quand a-t-on pu parler d’écologie politique ? Quelles en sont les différentes expressions ?

Et si ce n’est pas le cas, quels sont les apports éventuels et potentiels de l’écologie politique ? Ce cours se propose à répondre à ces questions, l’objectif global étant de comprendre les tenants et aboutissants de l’interface écologie et politique.
