International Studies Association 2017: A Quantitative Test of the Double Grid Framework #ISA2017

I’m at the 2017 meeting of the International Studies Association conference where Dr. Amanda Murdie (University of Georgia) and I will be presenting our coauthored paper “Environmental NGO influence on domestic policy change: A quantitative test of the Double Grid Framework”. It will take place on Thursday morning at 8:15am. Thursday, February 23, 8:15 AM – 10:00 AM at Room 348, Baltimore Convention Center. Our paper is part of the panel TA37: Environmental NGOs: Influence and Representation, Conflicts and Restrictions.

The role of organized civil society in effecting change in domestic environmental policy can no longer be denied, particularly in a context of global rapid environmental change. Non-state actors’ effectiveness in pressuring national governments may be affected by a number of factors. In this paper, we test the Double Grid Framework as posited by Pacheco-Vega (2005). We follow Murdie and Urpelainen (2015)’s model to evaluate the degree to which varying political contexts and organizational models affect how much pressure can transnational ENGOs put on domestic governments. We use a global dataset of environmental NGOs and countries, and we model governmental response to NGO pressure using regulatory pressure indicators. Finally, we posit hypotheses about which factors lead ENGOs to have a stronger influence on domestic policies of the global South.

If you are at ISA 2017, come to our panel!
