Special Lecture on Global Society III

Sustainable Development and 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
Classes consist of short interactive lectures, followed by both group and classroom discussions addressing core concepts and/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. 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
* Active participation to group and classroom discussions + short oral presentations : 30%. * Individual write-ups (submission of a total of four 500-word write-ups) : 30%. * Mini-project, consisting of both a final joint presentation and a final individual report (about 1000 words) : 40%.
教科書
Will not use textbook. Most reading materials will be made available in class.
参考書

履修上の注意
No prior study of governance of the global commons is required, but a strong interest and a serious commitment to learning about contemporary challenges and issues from an interdisciplinary perspective is crucial. This class is conducted in the active learning style, and constructive participation by students is highly encouraged.
