Environmental Governance in the Developing World

About this Course

This course is designed to introduce students to the unique challenges regarding the development, implementation, and enforcement of good environmental governance systems in the developing world. To that end, this course will generally eschew discussions of international environmental law and multilateral environmental agreements, and will instead focus on the domestic environmental law of developing countries, with a focus on China and South East Asia. Due to our work at the US-Asia Partnerships for Environmental Law, this course will draw from a variety of case studies from China and the lower Mekong region to illustrate key points. That said, students will be encouraged to research other areas of the world as part of the research they will conduct in this course. An AWR course.
