Governing for the Environment explores one of the dimensions of the value-knowledge system needed in any movement towards humane governance for the planet: the ecological sustainability and integrity of the Earth's environment. The book begins from the premise that while environmental knowledge and values have developed rapidly, their development must not overwhelm consideration of other core 'humane' values: peace, social justice, and human rights. The book's contributors explore a variety of ethical issues that must inform future global regulation of the Earth's environment.
Brendan Gleeson is Deputy Director of the Urban Frontiers Program, University of Western Sydney, Australia. Nicholas Low is Associate Professor in environmental planning at the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning at the University of Melbourne.
