This cutting-edge book considers the functional inseparability of risk and innovation within the context of environmental law and governance. Analysing both ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ innovation, the book argues that approaches to socio-ecological risk require innovation in order for society and the environment to become more resilient.

In addition to risk and innovation, this book also highlights the need for resilience thinking in environmental law and governance, questioning whether these three factors are mutually supportive. Featuring wide geographical coverage of environmental law issues in both developing and developed nations, contributions posit that environmental law and governance is in a constant state of transformation. Throughout the book, discrete topics such as oceans, climate change and biodiversity are considered alongside intersecting themes such as human rights and litigation.

Featuring up to date analysis of cutting edge topics by leading scholars in the field, The Transformation of Environmental Law and Governance will be a key resource for academics and students in the fields of environmental law, governance and regulation and environmental politics and policy. The valuable insights offered will also be beneficial for practitioners and lawmakers involved in the development of environmental law.
Critical Acclaim
‘Never has environmental law been more paradoxical; the need for it so obvious whilst its impact seemingly less notable. Society is grappling not only with a wide range of challenges, across multiple sectors but how it confronts them is also changing. As the contributors to this book reveal, searching for answers and new ways of doing things is essential, whilst underlining the continual challenges of human folly. This collection opens up the conversation, revealing new insights and explores some of the ongoing problems.’
