Dr. Elizabeth Baldwin is an Assistant Professor in the University of Arizona’s School of Government and Public Policy. She researches energy and environmental policy in the U.S. and in sub-Saharan Africa, with a particular focus on the way that decision-making authority is shared between state and non-state actors, as well as the laws and formal and informal rules that structure these arrangements. She currently has ongoing research projects examining the governance of invasive buffelgrass in Southern Arizona; the governance of forest transitions in the U.S. Forest Service; stakeholder engagement in the U.S. National Environmental Policy Act; state-regional interactions in U.S. clean energy governance; the governance of energy provision in sub-Saharan Africa; and the development of methods to study complex governance arrangements. Baldwin’s work has been published in the Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory, Public Administration Review, World Development, Governance, Policy Studies Journal, Environment and Resource Economics, and the Annual Review of Environment and Resources. She teaches courses in public management and environmental policy.
