Chapter 11: Risk, resilience, inequality and environmental law: prospects and obstacles
This concluding chapter draws out the main theoretical and analytical themes identified in the book that help us to expand our theoretical understanding of risk, resilience and inequality as it relates to environmental law. It reflects on issues associated with the role of law in managing the environment in the 21st Century and what we can say about pragmatic policy concerns, such as the experiments discussed in different chapters and their applicability to different social and economic contexts of environmental regulation. The attractions of resilience approaches are discussed alongside the difficulties of implementation. These include the challenges posed by multi-level governance and reducing the inequalities associated with environmental control. The chapter argues for risk and resilience strategies as complementary and working together and it signals the importance of experimentation in environmental governance approaches.
