Beth Schaefer Caniglia (Ph.D. U. of Notre Dame, 2000) conducts research focused at the intersection of social movements, organization and policymaking, especially related to the environmental movement. She has collected extensive data on the Multistakeholder Dialogues at the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development, where she also served as a consultant to the NGO Steering Committee.
