Special Lecture on Global Society III

Environmental Law and Governance in the Anthropocene
This course explores the role of law and governance in mediating the human-environment interface. It focuses on the legal and consequent governance challenges presented by the emergence of the Anthropocene as a possible new geological epoch. While the epoch has yet to be formally confirmed, the trope and discourse of the Anthropocene already confront law and governance scholars with a unique challenge concerning the need to question, and ultimately re-imagine, international environmental law and governance interventions in the light of a new socio-ecological situation.
Through interactive lectures, classroom discussions based upon pre-assigned readings, and the elaboration of a joint mini-project, students not only assess the (mostly unsuccessful and ineffective) regulatory interventions used thus far to mediate the human-environment interface; they also examine the possibility to develop counter-narratives and alternative institutional practices, by drawing on most recent critical legal approaches as well as sociocultural traditions that have been marginalised within international environmental law.

授業の方法
1. This course is conducted in the active learning style. Classes consist of interactive lectures, followed by both small group and classroom discussions addressing broad concepts and/or focusing on case studies. These discussions are usually based upon pre-assigned readings and build on a list of questions proposed in advance. The preparation of a final mini-project allows students to further engage in critical and reflective thinking. 2. The first class will be given online (Zoom: access information will be notified on ITC-LMS before the first class day). 3. From the second session onwards, classes will be held in person, with the option of online attendance for the students who are unable to come to campus for legitimate reasons approved by the university policy. 4. Students can individually ask questions to the instructor during the time window of 15 minutes before the core lecture period starts. The students who wish to use that time are advised to notify the instructor beforehand by email.

Although this course is mainly targeting PEAK students, participation of all categories of students (ippansei) will be welcomed.
