Abstract

As environmental programs have developed, conventions such as the Stockholm Convention, the Rotterdam Convention, and the Basel Conventions have come into play. The Stockholm Convention on the ban of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) has yet to be implemented by the United States. Therefore, I will examine where the convention got stuck during the implementation process. Specifically, I will argue that this lack of implementation can be explained using Bachrach and Baratz's article on "non decisions" and "the two faces of power."
