Nationell och internationell skogspolitik

Kursen har två primära mål: (1) att ge ett brett perspektiv bortom traditionella skogliga discipliner genom att undersöka samspelet mellan skog och samhälle, och (2) att granska globala skogsregimer och nationell skogspolitik med fokus på deras konsekvenser för skogshushållningen. Kursen ges av ett internationellt lärarlag, som involverar forskare från Sverige, Tyskland, Danmark och andra länder. Kursinnehåll och aktiviteter är speciellt utformade för internationella studentklasser bestående av många nationaliteter. Således ger kursen en unik möjlighet att undersöka samhälleliga förutsättningar och politiska effekter på skogsförvaltning ur ett jämförande internationellt perspektiv. Verksamheten i klassen omfattar debatter och många gruppövningar. Utanför klassrummet, besöker studenterna en privat skogsfastighet, läser vetenskaplig litteratur, utarbetar essäer, och skriver en reflekterande dagbok. I slutet av kursen har vi en 2-veckors studieresa till länder utanför Sverige, med fokus på att jämföra skogspolitik i utvalda länder eller regioner.
