A vulnerable environment: contextualising law with sustainability

Klaus Bosselmann

Keywords: environmental laws; sustainability; industrial economies; environment as commodity; compartmentalisation; fragmentation; sustainability law

Abstract

Environmental laws (including human rights laws) have not made much of a difference to humanity's battle for a sustainable future. Such laws merely mitigate the ecological damage inflicted by industrial economies and Western lifestyles. This article makes the case for an ecological approach to law, one aiming for social transformation rather than environmental mitigation.
