PhD Topic 

'Does the new regulatory framework for environmental protection and natural resource management in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Chile promote sustainable development in those countries?'

Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Chile are the countries bordering the East Coast of the Pacific Ocean, one of the most important oceans in the world. These countries have been working on the implementation of the sustainable development discourse to manage their natural resources and provide for environmental protection. In light of the international agreements and requirements, the pre-existing legal framework has been extensively modified and new institutions have been created. However, has this implementation been coherent with the discourse that they are adopting? More precisely, does the new regulatory framework for environmental protection and natural resource management in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Chile promote sustainable development in those countries, as was the original intention?
