ISTPP Director Published in Politics, Groups, and Identities

Arnold Vedlitz along with his co-authors, including ISTPP Fellow James Stoutenborough, have published their article, “Climate Scientists and Environmental Interest Groups: The Intersection of Expertise and Advocacy” in Politics, Groups, and Identities. In the article, the authors examine the advocacy role of climate change scientists using interest group theory. The authors expected that scientists who express more concern about climate change and those who think they are more efficacious are more likely to be active in environmental interest groups. Their data analysis indicates that this relationship holds for efficacy, but not for concern.

This article was based on a research project funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
