Risk, Resilience, Inequality and Environmental Law

Edited by Bridget M. Hutter, Professor of Risk Regulation, Department of Sociology, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK

This insightful book considers how the law has adapted to the environmental challenges of the 21st Century and the ways in which it might be used to cope with environmental risks and uncertainties whilst promoting resilience and greater equality. These issues are considered in social context by contributors from different disciplines who examine some of the experiments tried in different parts of the world to govern the environment, improve the available legal tools and give voice to more diverse groups.

‘This well-timed book tackles two of the most vexing, intertwined governance challenges facing global society: climate change and inequality. Its rich collection of chapters brings transnational, multi-disciplinary perspectives to illuminate possible pathways forward toward a more resilient and just future.’
– Cary Coglianese, University of Pennsylvania, US
