Economic Globalization and Ecological Localization PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Economic Globalization and Ecological Localization free pdf This book explores the interrelationship between global economic interests and local ecological interests, and its implications in law. It seeks to examine the capacity of global forces to subjugate local interests in responding to territorially confined threats. It evaluates the extent to which solutions to global environmental problems may depend on local action. It analyses the impact of globalization on legal structures and their ability to accommodate local concerns. It considers whether globalization, and the elimination of national borders, actually offers an opportunity to re-assert the power of local and regional governance.
