Norms on the Environment: Creation and Compliance
This course will look into different actions to protect the environment carried out by various actors, and think about norms on the environment. Many kinds of efforts are needed to cope with the environmental problems. For example, creation of a law is an important step, but it would not have an effect without activities to ensure the compliance. The government must act, but there are also other important actors. We will look into different actions to protect the quality of water and air, and the global environment. Students will be encouraged to think about means for protecting the environment from diverse viewpoints and ask questions.
