Abstract

This timely Handbook brings together a collection of innovative interdisciplinary approaches to explore the use of research methods in environmental law. With chapters on topics ranging from sustainability, climate change and activism to education, Actor Network Theory and non-human ontologies, this Handbook provides a theoretically informed analysis of methodological approaches to this important field.

Taking into consideration issues such as nonhuman agency, the anthropocene, and spatial and material turns in law this book builds on key concepts in the subject. The book also considers how environmental law must adapt to the new and urgent needs of a variety of bodies, both human and non-human, that require its protection. It argues that traditional ways of conceiving environmental law, and of accounting for problems brought about through anthropocentric means, have led to reinstatement of the problem of environmental degradation without imagining different avenues to resolve it.

This Handbook is a key addition to the existing literature and provides an invaluable contribution to practical critique and re-imagining of Environmental Law. It will be a crucial toolkit for graduate students and researchers in the field of environmental law wishing to explore critical approaches
