This article examines the comprehensive reform of the Chinese environmental governance system since the early 2010s after the goal of constructing ecological civilization was integrated into China's state policies. Legislative changes have been undertaken in order to improve the environmental governance system and juridical environmental protection has been reinforced to tackle environmental challenges through a revised public interest litigation system. China's current environmental public interest litigation system consists of civil environmental public interest litigation and administrative environmental public interest litigation. Only procuratorates have standing in administrative environmental public interest litigation whereas environmental non-government organizations who are permitted to undertake civil cases are in practice marginalized. Individuals, on the other hand, do not have standing in either civil or administrative environmental public interest litigation cases. The ecological and environmental damages litigation system has been established in order to recognize government agencies that have standing in protecting environmental public interest.

Global economic law-making cannot be practiced and formulated without an understanding of the context from which it emerges: the private actors who, through the markets, shape the global economy and the states that make economic policy to serve the needs of their populations. In this book we analyze fundamental economic concepts by using the language of law and political sciences to make these concepts understandable to those who do not have an economics background. Employing these concepts, as the foundation, we explore how they apply in the real world by examining the policies, strategies, and laws of major states. We examine further how private actors shape international financial law and contribute to the making of the global economic order.

This introduction to the book sums up the main results developed in the different chapters and emphasises the basic features of the reception of Malthus’s works and ideas in Europe, America and Japan. In particular, it stresses the importance of the French editions in this reception in Continental Europe, the neglect of Malthus’s theological views, and proposes an explanation of why Malthus’s works generated huge and lasting controversies.
