Environmental Justice (5233LAW)

This 10 credit point elective course is available to all students who have completed a minimum of 80 credit points of study towards their degree program. It provides an introduction to the theories and practices which guide the global environmental justice movement, and explores its connections to the fields of law, environmental studies and political ecology. The key aim of the course is to acquaint students with a range of conceptual approaches to the regulation of the natural environment which can inform the analysis and interpretation of both, environmental decision-making processes and examples of resistance to various forms of environmental injustice. Case studies will focus on topical issues such as struggles for climate justice, conflicts between Indigenous self-determination and environmental regulation, and the politics of water.
