Hobart

Note: Semester 2 Off campus offering is only available for outbound exchange students studying an equivalent unit overseas on approved international exchange.

Introduction

The focus in this course will be on the international law and policy relating to the environment. The course aims to provide an understanding of key concepts in this area of international law through case studies in substantive areas as diverse as climate change, forests and biological diversity. The course also aims to give an understanding of the structures and political processes involved in the negotiation of environmental treaties. Problems of domestic implementation will be addressed through case studies involving the implementation of global treaties of particular importance to Tasmania, e.g. The World Heritage and Ramsar Wetlands Conventions.
