New Task Force on Earth System Law

We are glad to announce the initiation of a new Earth System Governance Task Force on Earth System Law.

The ambition of this Task Force is, to establish an interdisciplinary community of scientists working in the fields of sustainability law and governance. With a focus on the legal dimensions of large-scale transformations, one of the main objectives of this Task Force is to explore novel legal developments that could contribute to changing the socio-ecological system with human societies acting as a global geophysical force. Considering the epistemological, ontological, ethical and normative factor of this endeavor, the Task Force invites scholars from different disciplines, regions, and career stages who want to advance the research on earth system law in the Anthropocene.

The Task Force aspires to launch, first, a website and a webinar series. Further, it aims to create interdisciplinary workshops and panels on thematic issues at Earth System Governance conferences and other conferences (the first workshop will be held during the 2017 Lund Conference on Earth System Governance). The Task Force also pursues joint publications, namely edited volumes and special issues with major university presses.
