Background and objectives

Environmental pollution and degradation have worldwide become major threats to personal and national securities as well as the survival of human society. Environmental hazards can lead to economic depression; result in the increase of poverty and political instability, or even play as a trigger factor for conflicts and wars. The balance between economic development and environmental protection is unremittingly a difficult question to address in every, and most particularly, developing countries.  

Vietnam is now facing the dangers of environmental insecurity such as climate change, sea level rise which are threatening the sustainable development of the country and the living hood of the people, water resources’ conflicts and disputes, “ecological invasion” which poses the problem of ecological imbalance and the possibility of turning the country into an industrial landfill, and “self-destruction” which is an ongoing internal factor to jeopardize our national environmental security.

These dangers mostly derive from limitations on policies, regulations as well as on the mechanisms to implement them. Studies on how to improve Vietnamese policies and legal regulations relating to environmental security, and strengthen the capacity of environmental protection agencies from other jurisdictions’ experiences of foreign countries are truly in need.

The international conference “The Interrelationship between Environmental Protection and Political-Social Stability and Economic Development from the Legal Perspective” is one of the important ways to diversify teaching materials for Vietnamese and international environmental laws in connection with the areas of law including business, civil, administrative, criminal and international law at Ho Chi Minh City University of Law.

The objective of the conference is to create a forum for scholars, managers and experts in Vietnam and from abroad to, firstly, discuss and find solutions for environmental issues and the legal aspect of their impacts on development activities, secondly, to share experiences and good practices for establishment and enforcement of environmental law, and thirdly, to expand the research network on environmental law among Vietnamese and international academia.
