Ecological restoration has been a low priority of most countries’ environmental laws, but is essential for the health of the biosphere. Professor Afshin Akhtar-Khavari (QUT Faculty of Law) has contributed to and co-edited (with Professor Benjamin J. Richardson from the University of Tasmania) the 1st edition of Ecological Restoration Law — Concepts and Case Studies.
The book’s diverse contributors explore a more ambitious agenda for ecological restoration law through critical theoretical perspectives and topical case studies. The book is part of the Law, Justice and Ecology Series which offers a cross-disciplinary and novel engagement with the connections between law and ecology.
Ecological Restoration Law — Concepts and Case Studies is available in hard copy and as an eBook from Routledge.
