This module aims to equip students with the capacity to think critically about ethical and economic approaches to environmental protection issues and the relationship between the two. It will examine human rights, eco-centric, utilitarian and economic perspectives both at the theoretical level and in the practical context of policy arguments over the appropriate role of regulatory, community-centred, and market-based forms of environmental decision-making.
