Special Lecture on Global Society IV

Climate Change and the Law
Characterized as the ‘defining issue of our age’, climate change has been a major international concern since the late 1980s. Fairly described as a ‘super wicked problem’, it poses a complex, polycentric, and seemingly intractable policy challenge. This course explores how laws, regulations and court decisions have burgeoned in response to climate change, at various levels, from cities through the international sphere. Through interactive lectures and case studies, students examine both the practical and theoretical aspects of topics such as: the role of science in climate change lawmaking, the growing perception of courtrooms as a key battleground in the public debate over climate change around the world, the emergence of climate disaster law as a new field of regulation, climate geoengineering governance, and so forth. Throughout the semester, students not only acquire a robust understanding of the main legal challenges raised by climate change; they also engage with in-depth analyses of selected issues discussed from the critical perspective.

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 lists of questions. Classes also include team-based learning activities such as case studies, law cases analysis, scenario analysis and a final role-play simulation. However, as not all PEAK students may be able to attend these, 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. Both ITC-LMS and Google Classroom will be used: Google Classroom Class code: *****
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 several short notes and one final essay on issues discussed in the classroom (40%). Any change that might be needed in the assessment for the course due to the unusual 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 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.
