Research Handbook on Law, Environment and the Global South

Edited by Philippe Cullet and Sujith Koonan

This comprehensive Research Handbook offers an innovative analysis of environmental law in the global South and contributes to an important reassessment of some of its major underlying concepts. The Research Handbook discusses areas rarely prioritized in environmental law, such as land rights, and underlines how these intersect with issues including poverty, livelihoods and the use of natural resources, challenging familiar narratives around development and sustainability in this context and providing new insights into environmental justice.

Chapter 3: Neoliberalism, law and nature

Larry Lohmann

Abstract

The growth of the neoliberal state amid productivity and financial crises has been accompanied by sweeping legal innovations relating to property, trade, investment, rent and criminality as well as an expansion in the mass of written law, in the gaming of legislation and in new regimes of environmental regulation involving new types of nature called ecosystem services. These innovations have reshaped the terrain of oppression on which legal scholars and other activists must locate themselves and coordinate with movements outside the legal profession.
