The minimum word count for the response is 1500 words and must not exceed 2000 words (approximately 6-8 pages – excluding cover page and references section). Provide a cover page with your name, course information, and a title, and include a references section on a separate page. The document must be double spaced with 12 point font, one inch margins, and use proper grammar/spelling. Also, please label each question being answered (e.g., Q-1A). Please do not copy questions. Copied questions will not count towards the word count, but will count towards exceeding the maximum length.

Q-1B. What common factors can you identify in these readings that led to international cooperation? Be sure to keep the readings from week 2 in mind when writing this policy response. What differences can you identify? Does expanding a treaty from a regional context to a more global context add complexity to the process? Explain. Any other thoughts on these case studies?

Q- 2B. According to Henry (2010), environmental activists in Russia were able to use transnational linkages to pressure the government. Based on the article, do you think international environmental regimes can be successful in incentivizing (or pressuring) state actors to collaborate for global environmental agenda? What is the role of non-government agencies? How essential are they?
