About the book topic and the seminar

The number of severe and sometimes catastrophic disruptive events has been rapidly increasing. Extreme weather events including floods, wildfires, hurricanes, and other natural disasters have become both more frequent and more severe, whilst events such as the COVID-19 pandemic represent a global threat to public health with huge economic effects that recovery packages tried to address. Nature-based disruption comes in addition to other forms of crises, lately illustrated by the war in Ukraine. These disruptive events, alone and in combination, have dramatic consequences on nature, human life, and the economy, calling for urgent action at all levels to mitigate their causes and adapt to their impacts. This calls for a reflection on resilience building in our legal systems.

This book focuses on how law and regulation in different legal orders have responded to these threats and can be reformed to make energy and natural resources systems more resilient in the face of disruptive natural crises and disasters.

In response to discourses of collapsology and end-of-growth theories, this book offers an analytical approach to developing legal responses that can help ensure the needs of present and future generations can be met through energy systems, infrastructure development, and natural resources management in these times of disruption. 'Resilience' is, therefore, seen as a common framework for the interpretation and development of energy, infrastructure, and natural resources law.

The launch seminar will start with a presentation of the book topic, content and main conclusions. The latter ones will be put in perspective with works on resilience from other social science disciplines. The second part of the seminar will focus on the manner resilience is addressed in the Norwegian context, and will be hold in Norwegian.
