The project Collaborative remedies for fragmented societies – facilitating the collaborative turn in environmental decision-making, CORE (2007-2021)

Leader of the Consortium: Prof. Lasse Peltonen, UEF

Leader of the legal-scientific work package: Prof. Ismo Pölönen, UEF 

The project examines and develops collaborative action in environmental planning and decision-making. Environmental law scholars of CORE aim to analyse how the valid law contributes, enables or blocks the collaborative governance and reconciliation of the diverse interests. Furthermore, the legal work package develops new types of regulatory models through which collaborative mechanisms could contribute to the quality and legitimacy of public and private environmental governance. The focus is in land use planning, impact assessment and environmental permit schemes and new type of agreements. In terms of research methods, we utilise legal dogmatic, regulation theory and comparative law approaches.
