Open Access research shaping international environmental governance...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content exploring environmental law and governance, in particular the work of the Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law & Governance (SCELG) based within the School of Law.

SCELG aims to improve understanding of the trends, challenges and potential solutions across different interconnected areas of environmental law, including capacity-building for sustainable management of biodiversity, oceans, lands and freshwater, as well as for the fight against climate change. The intersection of international, regional, national and local levels of environmental governance, including the customary laws of indigenous peoples and local communities, and legal developments by private actors, is also a signifcant research specialism.

Abstract

This book provides a survey of anti-nuclear opposition groups throughout the world, set in the context of an analytical overview of international experience of anti-nuclear protest. All countries of the world with a nuclear industry are covered. Particular prominence is given to movements in the five major Western nuclear powers - USA, Canada, France, West Germany and the UK. The book examines the composition of the anti-nuclear movements, assesses the importance of grass-roots activists and the expert dissenters and places the movements in their socio-political context.
