L'appréhension juridique de la nature ordinaire

Abstract : The law in force does not lack principles and instruments to govern activities that may have an impact on the environment. However, the concept of ordinary nature has not been introduced yet. Interest in common species and areas’ without scientifical, aesthetical or historical features has been mainly addressed by neighbouring disciplines such as conservation biology, sociology, geography or even philosophy. In response to this indifference, the thesis proposes to shed light on the legal understanding of the concept of ordinary nature by looking at theconditions of its foundation and implementation that would allow it to be recognized as a new conservation imperative. By questioning environmental law’s fondements, the thesis submits a more ecocentric legal structuring. It presents alternatives to individualistic modalities that structure our legal order. By giving a hint at new socio-ecosystem interdependencies, the legal understanding of ordinary nature also triggers new ideas on the national political organization. Therefore, the issue is twofold. The thesis aims to improve avenues of reform aboutenvironmental law while also ambitioning to establish sustainable environmental requirements at the very heart of the social contract.
