Environmental Governance: What is behind the term?

29 April 2015 | 13:00 - 14:00 | Seminar

Presenter: Mohammad A Alomari (PhD Candidate, School of Law, University of Leeds)

The environment has been degraded and put under pressure in many places around the world. This is an unsurprising consequence of the extensive human exploitation of natural resources in recent decades. Under these global circumstances, environmental governance has been considered as a promising solution, or at least as a mitigation. Environmental Governance has been a catchword in the field of environmental law and protection. It has been used widely in the literature on confronting threats to the deteriorating environmental state. So, the questions are: what lies behind this term; what does/can the term cover; to what extent does it have a concrete meaning; and what are the themes associated and coupled with it?

This is a free seminar open to all and lunch will be available. If you are planning on attending please e-mail Antony Butcher
