- Master's theses (ILP) 
Today’s globalisation has brought about legal and binding international obligations. International organisations are formulating policies to be implemented by member nations. Some obligations are legally binding, while others are not required to follow. A state is the sovereign power and has the choice to sign or discard it. International policies with relevance to land use planning will most likely play a greater role in the coming years. How are international policies reflected in a planning system, and how is this shown on a land use plan? This thesis attempts to shed light on the how a planning system is structured to implement an international policy regarding green growth that Norway and South Korea has accepted, and in what way it can be seen on the local level. The public administration may have to undergo changes in order to implement an international policy unless the nation has the tools and institutions to carry out the policy.
