FY 2014/2015 Research Topic: C-42
Formation and Operation of Laws, Institutions, and Organizations Concerning Resources and Environmental Policy


By analyzing the current status and formation process of a legal system and administrative organizations in connection with the resource and environmental policies in developed and developing countries, we will show the reason why many developing countries cannot promptly overcome the environmental and resource constraints faced in the process of economic development. Also, we will show the conditions of the legal systems and administrative organizations required to implement resource and environment policy efficiently in developing countries by comparing them with the formation process of other public policies, such as development policy and social policy, and examples of the formation process in developed countries.
