LAWS 250 - LAW AND SUSTAINABILITY
Our society is challenged from multiple points and each of these questions our ability to sustain ourselves. Important issues such as over consumption, capitalism, social unrest, immigration, environmental quality, food and water scarcity, climate change has heightened policy and legal interest in sustainable development, both globally and locally. It has led to a spate of policy measures at the global, national and local level to develop sustainably. This course will examine the main legal, political, analytical, and ethical approaches used to craft responses to sustainable development. Taking institutions and society into account, it will study the vairous factors that shape global law and policy processes and its implications for sustainability. The course is divided into three segments: the first constitutes an ethical exploration of the meanings and problems of sustainability and its institutionalization in different political contexts. The second segment introduces key legal concepts pertaining to sustainable law, and the third segment concentrates on case studies.
