Module content and teaching

Principal aims

This module builds on the core Foundations of EU Law module. This is an interdisciplinary half-module that will be taught in conjunction with the School of Life Sciences and will be open to Biological Sciences students as well as Law students. The module aims to bridge the gap between Law and Science in the context of the ecosystems of the seas and investigate why the detailed regulation and legal instruments adopted to ensure the protection of biodiversity and the sustainable use of resources have failed to achieve their objectives. Particularly, it shows how law created to address human or environmental issues is sometimes developed without scientific understanding, so that failure of the law (and perhaps collapse of a natural system) is both inevitable and costly. The module will explain the socio-economic objective driving policy, consider the position of coastal communities, and investigate the ability of the ecosystem to deliver the outcomes sought by legislators.
