From the 17th untill the 19th of November, the Stockholm Environmental Law and Policy Centre and the Stockholm Resilience Centre will host the Law for Social-Ecological Resilience Conference: an international and transdisciplinary event at Stockholm University.
Law for Social-Ecological Resilience will highlight the impact of law on environmental governance, ecosystem management and sustainability policies – ranging from local to global contexts. Legal structures, principles and processes, as well as core concepts of the rule of law, impinge on the capacity of societies to manage ecosystems, withstand environmental degradation as well as economic shocks, and rebuild and renew itself afterwards.
Law for Social-Ecological Resilience will assess, analyse and debate the impact of law in these respects – and thus further the understanding of the role of law and improve the prospects for environmental governance and sustainable development.
