There is persuasive evidence suggesting we are on the brink of human-induced ecological disaster that could change life on Earth as we know it. There is also a general consensus among scientists about the pace and extent of global ecological decay, including a realisation that humans are central to causing the global socio-ecological crisis. This new epoch has been called the Anthropocene. Considering the many benefits that constitutional environmental protection holds out in domestic legal orders, it is likely that a constitutionalised form of global environmental law and governance would be better able to counter the myriad exigencies of the Anthropocene. This book seeks to answer this central question: from the perspective of the Anthropocene, what is environmental constitutionalism and how could it be extrapolated to formulate a global framework? In answering this question, this book offers the first systematic conceptual framework for global environmental constitutionalism in the epoch of the Anthropocene.

Constitutions can play a central role in responding to environmental challenges, such as pollution, biodiversity loss, lack of drinking water, and climate change. The vast majority of people on earth live under constitutional systems that protect the environment or recognize environmental rights. Such environmental constitutionalism, however, falls short without effective implementation by policymakers, advocates and jurists. Implementing Environmental Constitutionalism: Current Global Challenges explains and explores this 'implementation gap'. This collection is both broad and deep. While some of the essays analyze crosscutting themes, such as climate change and the need for rule of law that affect the implementation of environmental constitutionalism throughout the world, others delve deeply into geographically contextual experiences for lessons about how constitutional environmental law might be more effectively implemented. This volume informs global conversations about whether and how environmental constitutionalism can be made more effective to protect the natural environment.

The Anthropocene, in which humankind has become a geological force, is a major scientific proposal; but it also means that the conceptions of the natural and social worlds on which sociology, political science, history, law, economics and philosophy rest are called into question. The Anthropocene and the Global Environmental Crisis captures some of the radical new thinking prompted by the arrival of the Anthropocene and opens up the social sciences and humanities to the profound meaning of the new geological epoch, the ‘Age of Humans’. Drawing on the expertise of world-recognised scholars and thought-provoking intellectuals, the book explores the challenges and difficult questions posed by the convergence of geological and human history to the foundational ideas of modern social science. If in the Anthropocene humans have become a force of nature, changing the functioning of the Earth system as volcanism and glacial cycles do, then it means the end of the idea of nature as no more than the inert backdrop to the drama of human affairs. It means the end of the ‘social-only’ understanding of human history and agency. These pillars of modernity are now destabilised. The scale and pace of the shifts occurring on Earth are beyond human experience and expose the anachronisms of ‘Holocene thinking’. The book explores what kinds of narratives are emerging around the scientific idea of the new geological epoch, and what it means for the ‘politics of unsustainability’.

تُعتبر مؤسسة راند أهم مراكز الدراسات الاستراتيجيّة الأميريكيّة على الإطلاق، ويعدُّها البعض "العقل الاستراتيجي الأميريكي"، وهي الذراع البحثي شبه الرسمي للإدارة الأميريكيّة والبنتاغون بوجه خاص. وفي إطار الجهود الاميريكيّة لإعادة رسم الخريطة السياسيّة والاقتصاديّة للعالم الإسلامي بعد 11 سبتمبر 2001؛ صدر هذا التقرير/الكتاب. والدراسة تحاول تحديد ملامح الاستراتيجية التي يتعين على الإدارة الأميريكيّة تبنّيها من أجل "إعادة بناء الدين الإسلامي"؛ وذلك لدمجه في المنظومة الديمقراطيّة الغربيّة. وهي استراتيجيّة تُبنى أساسًا على قطع موارد الأصوليين، ودعم وتمويل الحداثيين والعلمانيين. وهذه الدراسة موجّهة باﻷصل لصانع القرار الأميريكي؛ لاستكمال البُعد المعرفي في السياسات الأميريكية في مواجهة "التطرف الإسلامي"، فيجب قراءتها في هذا السياق. والانتباه إلى أن المصطلح المستخدم ليس مُطلقًا، بل هو يُعبّر عن رؤية متحيّزة بطبيعتها لإمبرياليّة معرفيّة؛ تسعى لتشكيل "اﻵخر" المسلم طبقًا لتصوّراتها الخاصة، والتي تُسبغ عليها مطلقيّة معرفيّة وإنسانيّة.
