Good afternoon dear listeners! The topic I want to present is the management of international disputes by Chinese and Australian law firms in connection with sustainable environmental practices in their organization in the next ten years.
Introduction to the Subject
The development of international law and international relations in the XXI century is influenced by three main factors: globalization, scientific and technological progress, and ecology. The lack of public attention to environmental problems causes more and more concern and finds a corresponding response. However, the situation has changed in recent years: the environment is in focus, and as the law changes, there is a demand for legal services in this area. The environmental crisis can only be dealt with by joint efforts of all nations of the world (Tanaka, 2018). Accordingly, it is essential now to have an idea of how judicial institutions will manage international conflicts. For a more in-depth look at the issue, a general concept of global dispute management by Chinese and Australian firms for the near future will be presented for your consideration.
International Dispute Management by Chinese Firms
China is among the developing countries, and it has two tasks to accomplish – to improve the national economy and protect the ecosystem. Based on its reality, China considers environmental stability one of the fundamental government policies in its modernization and attaches strategic importance to achieving long-term development (Mao et al., 2020). Choosing the right approach for managing international disputes is an urgent task. For the near future, the following regulatory policies on the part of legal institutions have been selected:
- Development and implementation of laws.
- Continuous improvement of the legal system in this area.
- Strengthening supervision of strict compliance with laws.
- Regular international negotiations with other countries and the setting of common goals.
- Exchange and cooperate with other states and international organizations on environmental and development issues.
- Outlining China’s role in global environmental service.
In this way, the state promotes international cooperation in this field and conscientiously fulfills obligations.
Management of International Disputes by Australian Firms
The peculiarity of Australia is that one state occupies an entire continent. In human economic activity, people have developed most parts of the continent, resulting in ecosystem changes and reduced flora and fauna species ranges. The state considers the environmental issue one of the fundamental policies, and law firms play a crucial role in resolving ecological disputes locally and globally (de Vries, 2021). For the near future, the following regulatory strategies have been selected by the instances:
- Changing the economy and using safe, innovative technology.
- Modernization of the legal framework and strengthening of control over non-compliance with laws.
- Meetings and international negotiations to resolve conflicts.
- Collaboration with firms in other countries on environmental issues.
- Establishing dispute resolution programs and conducting neutral situation assessments.
- Outlining Australia’s role in global environmental service.
As one of the greenest nations worldwide, Australia and the law firms involved are doing their part to create a future balance between modern lifestyles and concern for the environment.
International law throughout its history has developed a robust system of peaceful dispute management, of which international legal institutions are a critical element. Because of their peculiarities and specificities, the resolution of global environmental disputes has led to changes in the organization and activities of existing institutions of this kind. It has also given rise to new means of conflict prevention. Under the current conditions, there is a need for a comprehensive analysis of the international legal framework to resolve environmental disputes through law firms. It concerns the improvement of efficiency of the existing mechanisms of ecological cooperation of states and the creation of new tools for such a collaboration. Ecology is a circumstance that affects humanity’s very existence; its underestimation can lead to disastrous consequences, so it is essential to pay attention to this problem now and expand knowledge in this field continuously.
Thank you for your attention!
