The Environmental Governance Lab at the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto seeks to develop new ideas and policy tools to respond to the challenge of environmental governance at multiple scales. The Munk School is an interdisciplinary academic centre with various research and educational programs committed to the field of globalization and the Lab is a hub for research on environmental governance at University of Toronto. Research in the Lab focuses on political transformation needed for effective environmental responses. Conceptualizing pathways to decarbonization is a main concentration in addition to projects in the areas of experimentation, legitimacy, accountability, and coherence in global sustainability governance.  The Research Centre Toronto is led by Environmental Governance Lab co-directors Prof. Steven Bernstein and Prof. Matthew Hoffmann, who both are members of the Earth System Governance Lead Faculty.
