Fairness and nature: when worlds collide
Do you think nature should be conserved for future generations, or is it a resource to be exploited for its financial value? How can government policies provide economic benefit, whilst being environmentally sustainable and delivering social fairness for all those affected, even the most disadvantaged groups? How we make difficult but fair decisions about managing our natural resources has relevance to many local and international issues, for example, in the UK there are currently lively debates about high-speed train lines and fracking for shale gas. This course examines how we can make those difficult decisions about natural resource management, when there are many competing interests and values to consider, using fundamental principles and learning how to apply them to international case studies.
