Science and Sovereignty: Linking Environmental Sustainability to Smart and Secure Borders

This project was an investigation of how science had been considered and employed in developing options to divert water from North Dakota to Manitoba. Two questions were explored: (1) What role, if any, does science play in governmental deliberations and intergovernmental processes that may produce ecological consequences of uncertain scale, magnitude and scope in another country? and (2) How within-country decision-making processes that may have cross-border environmental implications influence if and how science is considered?
