Environmental Management and Policy IV

This course explores fundamental issues of "law and the environment" from comparative, international/transnational, and socio-legal perspectives. This course aims to understand the basic framework of the environmental rule of law widely shared in a global society. Starting with introducing Japan’s environmental law and experiences, this course sheds light on basic concepts and principles of the environmental rule of law and calls attention to the need to examine how science and risk analysis connect with the law.
