about this item

The author proposes the use of constitutionalism to re-imagine and reform global juridical and governance structures involved in the global environmental crisis in the human-dominated era of the Anthropocene. He describes how the constitutional approach to environmental protection can create a regulatory order and improve environmental law and governance, discussing how it could be applied in global terms. He addresses the Anthropocene and its implications for regulatory and legal interventions to mediate human-environment interactions; how constitutionalism should form the basis of a legal approach to mediate these interactions, describing its rationale, objectives, meaning, elements, and advantages and disadvantages; global constitutionalism and its meaning, manifestations and elements, parallels with domestic constitutionalism, and relevance for global environmental law and governance; environmental constitutionalism and its manifestations in domestic jurisdictions; the links between the ideas of the Anthropocene and constitutionalism; and how to translate environmental constitutionalism to the global regulatory domain.
