This course provides an overview of policy and law regarding sustainable development. The course begins with the study and analysis of the concept ‘sustainable development’ and its development over time in international agreements. In connection to this, the course covers principles of international law related to sustainable development. The focus then shifts to cover practical aspects of sustainable development. The implementation of international agreements and the issue of how to distribute responsibility between states, business corporations and consumers are examples of topics for discussion.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
