Description

The purpose of this course is to provide students with an introduction to law and policy regulating the use and protection of selected natural resources in Aotearoa | New Zealand (including water, fisheries, climate, minerals/petroleum/gas, energy, biodiversity, landscapes and forestry). It will examine natural resources law and policy-making in Aotearoa within the broader regional Pacific and global context. The course will engage with some of the theoretical challenges for the regulation of natural resources, such as: the recognition of Maori (and Indigenous) rights to natural resources and their governance; the purposes of environmental regulation, including the influence of the ‘Sustainable Development Goals’ and more ‘ecocentric’ approaches; whether natural resources can be ‘owned’ and the role of private property and markets in resource management. The course will place Aotearoa| New Zealand law and policy in its regional and global context, drawing on examples from domestic comparative and international law, and pay attention to interdisciplinary perspectives from beyond law.
