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