Special Lecture on Global Society II

Sustainable Development and Governance of the Global Commons
Governance of the global commons represents a pivotal aspect of global environmental governance and has become a key priority for the United Nations as part of its 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. This course addresses the question of how those resource domains or areas that lie outside of the political reach of any one nation State are, or fail to be, governed. Through interactive lectures and team-based learning activities, including case studies and scenario analysis, students revisit the idea of the earth as a common: they examine the need to protect various shared resources that are considered of fundamental significance for global sustainability in the Anthropocene and explore a range of complex regulatory frameworks and decision making processes. In so doing, they progressively acquire a robust understanding of both traditional and innovative ways to govern the global commons (from the subsurface to outer space) and familiarize with critical accounts of core concepts and principles such as ‘the tragedy of the commons’, ‘the common heritage of mankind’, distributive justice, enclosure, stewardship, and so forth.

授業の方法
Due to the situation with Covid-19, this course will be conducted entirely online. There will be live online short interactive lectures followed by group and classroom discussions based upon pre-assigned readings and list of questions. Classes also include team-based learning activities such as case studies, scenario analysis and a final role-play simulation. A list of case studies will be distributed at the beginning of the course. However, as not all PEAK students may be able to attend these online sessions, it will be possible to obtain all information and undertake all activities asynchronously i.e. there will be no penalty to students who cannot attend the online class.
成績評価方法
Evaluation is based on active participation to classroom discussions and learning activities as described above (60%). In addition, students are asked to write two short essays (mid-term and final) on issues discussed in the classroom (40%). Any change that might be needed in the assessment for the course due to the situation as a result of the Covid-19 virus will be communicated in due course.
教科書
Will not use texbook. Most reading materials will be made available in class.
参考書
Will not use reference book. Reference books will be introduced throughout the course.
履修上の注意
No prior study of environmental regulation and policy is required, but a strong interest and a serious commitment to learning about environmental issues from a cross-disciplinary perspective is essential. This class is partly conducted in the active learning style, and constructive participation by students is highly encouraged. ※ Google Classroom information: Both ITC-LMS and Google Classroom will be used.
