Law as Vehicle for Social Change: Mainstreaming Non-Extractive Economic Practices

Project description

Law in support of non-extractive economic practices

The spectacular growth of the global economy today is associated with some collateral consequences such as the rise of inequality, the increase of climate migrants and refugees as well as significant damages to the environment. As a result, new economic and social proposals inspired by non-extractive economic practices have emerged, such as the circular economy and restriction of growth in favour of sustainable development. However, existing economic systems, purchasing behaviour and legal frames as well as political rhetoric treat such proposals as impracticable and utopic. The EU-funded N-EXTLAW project proposes a study that aims to show how private law can make such radical proposals politically trustworthy, providing policy ideas and legal instruments that will make non-extractive economic practices appealing and realistic.
