Durfee, Mary

This case study examines nongovernmental leadership (citizen involvement), in transnational environmental problem management through the Binational Forum formed to advance joint U.S.-Canadian efforts to clean up Lake Superior. This group played an integral part in the creation of a vision statement for the lake, but the analysis is mainly concerned with how it operated. The study offers students an opportunity to discuss the problems of citizen participation across national borders and think through how to work effectively with citizen advisory groups.
