FY 2016/2017 Research Topic: C-31
Formation Process of Administrative Organizations of Resource and Environmental Policies


Resource and environmental policies are often referred to as "late-comer public policies." The position they assume in public policy spheres in each country can be analyzed by investigating the process of the formation and transformation of administrative organizations in charge of resources and environmental issues. This research project compares the positions of administrative bodies in charge of resources and environmental policies among different countries and attempts to elucidate the policy issues behind the different positions of these organizations within the full range of government organizations.
