Special Lecture on Global Society II

Law and Natural Resources
This course addresses the role of law in regulating natural resource exploration, exploitation and conservation either within or beyond national jurisdiction. It focuses on specific materials and processes that exist in nature and are considered of actual or potential use or value to humans : land, minerals, genetic resources, Antarctica, and so
forth. Through an integrated analysis of seemingly disparate fields of law (environmental law, investment law, human rights law, socio-legal studies), students explore how the law mediates the competing interests that come into contact as a result of economic globalization. Using case studies and joint mini-projects, they discuss this complex, ever-evolving and uneven web of legal norms from the critical perspective. In so doing, they both assess to what extent and with what consequences law is forged by an anthropocentric view of nature; and examine the opportunities and constraints for different (legal) approaches.

授業の方法
Classes consist of interactive lectures, followed by both group and classroom discussions addressing broad concepts or focusing on case studies. These discussions are generally based on pre-assigned readings and build on a list of questions proposed in advance. Students will also prepare and present a joint mini-project (final team-based assignment).
成績評価方法
1) Active participation to group and classroom discussions : 25%. 2) Individual write-ups (submission of four to five 500-word write-ups) : 40%. 3) Preparation and final presentation of a joint mini-project : 35%. 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.

履修上の注意
No prior study of law 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.
