Abstract

This is an edited collection of new articles, published by Hart Publishing, Oxford, 2006. The editors are Professors Benjamin J. Richardson and Stepan Wood, Osgoode Hall law School, Toronto.

The volume of new essays presents critical new scholarship on law for sustainable development. Its contributors provide international and comparative perspectives on the current state of environmental law and its future directions. Aimed at both students and scholars in law and other social sciences, it goes beyond conventional descriptions of environmental law and policy to a theoretical and interdisciplinary analysis of the role of law in sustainable development. Starting from the premise that ecological sustainability requires environmental law systems to be sensitive to a wide array of institutional, social and economic issues and to emerging forms of environmental governance beyond conventional legal regulation, the book explores: future directions in command regulation; changing forms of public administration; risk assessment and precautionary regulation; ecological justice; public participation in environmental decision-making; indigenous peoples and the environment; industry self-regulation; economic instruments; sustainable finance; the state of international environmental law; and environmental law in developing countries.

Contributors include: Klaus Bosselmann (Auckland), Elizabeth Fisher (Oxford), Carolyn Abbot (Manchester), Donna Craig (Macquarie), Steve Dovers (ANU), David Driesen (Syracuse), Oren Perez (Israel), Jona Razzaque (West of England) and Jaye Ellis (McGill).
