Honors Symposium – Jonathan Lewallen

Political Science Professor Jonathan Lewallen recently gave a symposium titled “Governing the Coasts” to UT’s Honors students. Professor Lewallen detailed how the various agencies and organizations responsibility for policies governing coastlines are locked in a complicated web of competing authority and challenges. Some agencies govern certain activities or areas while others have responsibility over different parts of the coast or different activities. As a result, resolving issues related to coasts in the US is challenging, particularly in light of major challenges like offshore drilling for oil and global climate change.
