Weston book urges new approach to environmental law
Main Page Content
Burns Weston, emeritus professor of law at the University of Iowa College of Law, has co-authored a book that urges policy makers to take a new approach to environmental law.
The book, Green Governance: Ecological Survival, Human Rights and the Law of the Commons, calls for a change in how humans relate to the natural environment. Rather than seeing it as its own separate realm, Weston proposes a method of environmental protection based on broader notions of economics and human rights, and on commons-based governance.
The book was co-authored by David Bollier, a senior fellow at the Norman Lear Center at the USC Annenberg School for Communication and co-founder of the Commons Strategy Group. It was published by Cambridge University Press and more information is available at www.cambridge.org/us/knowledge/isbn/item6975799/?site_locale=en_US.
