|Subject Overview:|| |
Natural resources are of critical importance in this globalised world of resources scarcity. This subject examines the legal framework governing natural resources in Asia through surveying the regulatory regimes for different types of natural resources (ie immobile mineral deposits, fluid fossil fuels, living organisms and emerging natural resources) in China, India and Myanmar—three large countries rich in natural resources, but with distinct governing regimes and underlying ideologies. The objective is to provide students with a practical understanding of this important area of economic regulation, and an appreciation of the broader normative considerations (ie efficiency and redistribution) that are applicable to similar issues elsewhere. This subject draws from the lecturer’s extensive academic scholarship on resources law, regulatory theory, and Asian legal systems.
