Accomplishing Climate Governance

Accomplishing Climate Governance

Author: Harriet (University of Durham) Bulkeley Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 14/11/2019

This book provides a new approach to thinking about the politics and geographies of climate governance. It argues that in order to understand the nature and potential of the range of new responses to climate change emerging at multiple scales we need to examine how governance is accomplished - how it is undertaken, practised and contested. Through a range of case studies drawn from communities, corporations and local government, the book examines how climate change comes to be governed and made to matter as an issue with which diverse publics should be concerned. It concludes that rather than seeking the solution to climate change once and for all, we need to engage with the ways in which we can channel our intentions to ameliorate the climate problem to more progressive ends. The book will be of interest to researchers, advanced students and policy makers across the social sciences.

Environmental Law and Governance for the Anthropocene

Environmental Law and Governance for the Anthropocene

Author: Louis J. Kotze Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 31/10/2019

The era of eco-crises signified by the Anthropocene trope is marked by rapidly intensifying levels of complexity and unevenness, which collectively present unique regulatory challenges to environmental law and governance. This volume sets out to address the currently under-theorised legal and consequent governance challenges presented by the emergence of the Anthropocene as a possible new geological epoch. While the epoch has yet to be formally confirmed, the trope and discourse of the Anthropocene undoubtedly already confront law and governance scholars with a unique challenge concerning the need to question, and ultimately re-imagine, environmental law and governance interventions in the light of a new socio-ecological situation, the signs of which are increasingly apparent and urgent. This volume does not aspire to offer a univocal response to Anthropocene exigencies and phenomena. Any such attempt is, in any case, unlikely to do justice to the multiple implications and characteristics of Anthropocene forebodings. What it does is to invite an unrivalled group of leading law and governance scholars to reflect upon the Anthropocene and the implications of its discursive formation in an attempt to trace some initial, often radical, future-facing and imaginative implications for environmental law and governance.

International Environmental Law

International Environmental Law

Author: Jonathan C. Carlson, Sir Geoffrey W. R. Palmer, Burns H. Weston Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/10/2019

The new edition of this classic coursebook has been extensively revised with a view to maximising student learning and engagement. Highlights include a completely rewritten Part I of the book. Four new chapters introduce students to international law by examining the legal dimensions of several real-world environmentally related conflicts, including the Bering Sea Fur Seal arbitration, the dispute over whaling in the Southern Ocean, the Rainbow Warrior incident, the Trail smelter arbitration, and the negotiation of the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution. Students learn the basics of international law by studying how it is used by states in the resolution of disputes and how it is developed by states to address new problems. The second part of the book continues the tradition of using problems to explore various topics in international environmental law. Significant changes include greater reliance on primary legal materials (treaties, resolutions, etc.) as readings and the addition of introductory overviews to help students gain basic knowledge of an area of law before tackling the complexities presented by the problems.

Climate Change and the Voiceless

Climate Change and the Voiceless

Author: Randall S. (Monmouth University, New Jersey) Abate Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 24/10/2019

Future generations, wildlife, and natural resources - collectively referred to as 'the voiceless' in this work - are the most vulnerable and least equipped populations to protect themselves from the impacts of global climate change. While domestic and international law protections are beginning to recognize rights and responsibilities that apply to the voiceless community, these legal developments have yet to be pursued in a collective manner and have not been considered together in the context of climate change and climate justice. In Climate Change and the Voiceless, Randall S. Abate identifies the common vulnerabilities of the voiceless in the Anthropocene era and demonstrates how the law, by incorporating principles of sustainable development, can evolve to protect their interests more effectively. This work should be read by anyone interested in how the law can be employed to mitigate the effects of climate change on those who stand to lose the most.

Science-Based Lawmaking

Science-Based Lawmaking

Author: Dionysia-Theodora Avgerinopoulou Format: Hardback Release Date: 11/09/2019

The Book takes the approach of a critique of the prevailing international environmental law-making processes and their systemic shortcomings. It aims to partly redesign the current international environmental law-making system in order to promote further legislation and more effectively protect the natural environment and public health. Through case studies and doctrinal analyses, an array of initial questions guides the reader through a variety of factors influencing the development of International Environmental Law. After a historical analysis, commencing from the Platonic philosophy up to present, the Book holds that some of the most decisive factors that could create an optimized law-making framework include, among others: progressive voting processes, science-based secondary international environmental legislation, new procedural rules, that enhance the participation in the law-making process by both experts and the public and also review the implementation, compliance and validity of the science-base of the laws. The international community should develop new law-making procedures that include expert opinion. Current scientific uncertainties can be resolved either by policy choices or by referring to the so-called sound science. In formulating a new framework for environmental lawmaking processes, it is essential to re-shape the rules of procedure, so that experts have greater participation in those, in order to improve the quality of International Environmental Law faster than the traditional processes that mainly embrace political priorities generated by the States. Science serves as one of the main tools that will create the next generation of International Environmental Law and help the world transition to a smart, inclusive, sustainable future.
