Special Lecture on Global Society IV

Sustainable Development and Governance of the Global Commons
As the resources in the global commons fall outside the domain of jurisdictions of individual states, the need becomes pressing for collective, coherent decision-making mechanisms on how to govern the global commons. Understood as increasingly relevant for achieving sustainable development, governance of the global commons has been progressively extended to include new resources such as the subsurface, which is being used as an energy resource and storage space.
Drawing on complementary fields of knowledge (Critical Environmental Law, Governance studies, STS*), this course examines the emergence of new regulatory frameworks addressing six global commons : high seas, the deep-sea bed, Antarctica, the subsurface, the atmosphere, and outer space. Through short interactive lectures, embedded case studies, scenario analysis, and role-play simulations, we will discuss a variety of regulatory frameworks, decision-making processes, institutional arrangements, and mechanisms, at the interface of science and policy.

授業の方法
Classes will consist of short interactive lectures, followed by both group and classroom discussions generally based on pre-assigned readings. They also include individual or joint oral presentations, as well as specific learning activities conducted on a collaborative basis (teamwork), namely : situational case studies, scenario analysis, and role-play simulations. Classes are conducted in English.
成績評価方法
Evaluation will be based on active participation to classroom discussions and learning activities (70%). Learning activities include individual or joint oral presentations as well as specific learning activities conducted on a collaborative basis (case studies, scenario analysis, and role-play simulations). In addition, students will be asked to write 1 short final essay (30%).
教科書
Will not use texbook or reference book. Most reading materials will be made availbale in class.
参考書
Will not use texbook or reference book. Most reading materials will be made availbale in class.
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 an interdisciplinary perspective is essential. This class is partly conducted in the active learning style, and constructive participation by students is highly encouraged.
