Public Participation and Policy
"The central area of my research involves social movements and environmental policy in the United States. A three-volume series examines the role of social movements and civil society organizations in building momentum for policy reform. The first volume, Alternative Pathways in Science and Industry (MIT Press), studied industrial reform movements in support of sustainable technologies and policies. The second volume, Localist Movements in a Global Economy (MIT Press), studied the role of locally owned, independent enterprises in building more just and sustainable regional economies. The third volume (currently in progress), studies the convergence of environmental and economic development policies in the United States that has resulted from coalitions of labor unions, environmental organizations, green businesses, and local governments.
Another significant area of research involves the role of civil-society organizations and social movements in science, technology, environmental, and health policy. This work on public participation is part of the new political sociology of science, which studies the institutional matrix of scientific research and technological policy, including the role of neoliberal thought and policy.
