"Guide to International Environmental Law" addresses why and how the international system elaborates environmental obligations and monitors compliance with them. The book discusses the relationship between international obligations and national and local law, with particular reference to federal systems. It points out the influence national law has on the emergence of international law and the growing role international norms play in the development and enforcement of national and local environmental policies. It also examines the extent to which environmental protection should be and is taken into account in other regulatory frameworks, from trade law and human rights to disarmament and refugee policy.

This book analyzes the law and policy for the management of global common resources. As competing demands on the global commons are increasing, the protection of environment and the pursuit of growth give rise to all sorts of conflicts. It also analyzes issues in the protection of the global commons from a fairness, effectiveness and world order perspective. The author examines whether policymaking and trends point to a fair allocation of global common resources that is effective in protecting the environment and the pursuit of sustainable development. The author looks at the cost-effectiveness of international environmental law and applies theories of national environmental law to international environmental problems. Chapters include analysis on areas such as marine pollution, air pollution, fisheries management, transboundary water resources, biodiversity, hazardous and radioactive waste management, state responsibility and liability.

This dynamic casebook takes an interdisciplinary approach in an analytical framework that can be applied to any international environmental legal problem. By studying both legal and non-legal issues, students gain a full and meaningful understanding of this global problem and its legal solutions. International Environmental Law and Policy is the perfect vehicle for tackling the challenges of international environmental law from a global perspective. International Environmental Law and Policy leads students from fundamental issues to sophisticated applications in four main parts: The Nature of International Environmental Issues - Basic Concepts and Context explores non-legal issues such as: global population; intergenerational equity; risk assessments; the tension between industrialized and developing countries; and the underpinning legal issues of public international law and international institutions: Pollution Control offers a detailed analysis of the 'precautionary principle,' the right to a clean environment, general norms applicable to environmental agencies, general principles of international responsibility for environmental harm, and environmental warfare. Natural Resource Management presents detailed discussions of the 'Harmon Doctrine,' the World Heritage Convention, options for conserving biologicla diversity, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), and the protection of whales and other species Trade and Finance delves into dispute settlement in the World Trade Organization, the North American Free Trade Agreement, multilateral development banks, debt relief approaches, and funds for the environment. The authors use a skillful blend of material to capture and hold student interest including: detailed case studies that explore international environmental norms exercises which make students apply specific legal rules to real-world cases careful analysis of four principal cases: Trail Smelter; Corfu Channel; Lac Lanous; and Nuclear Weapons Testing appendixes on Researching International Environmental Law, International Organizations, and General Steps in Formulating Multilateral Agreements detailed discussions on the relationship between the international and domestic implementation of law in-depth coverage of the liability, accountability, and valuation of natural resource damages

International Environmental Law and Policy in Africa

C.O.OKIDl1 I welcome the opportunity to prepare a Foreword to the book on Environmental Policy and Law in Africa, edited by Kevin R. Gray and Beatrice Chaytor. It is a pleasure to do that because the book is a contribution to the cause of capacity building for development and implementation of environmental law in Africa, a goal towards which I have had an undivided focus over the last two decades. There is still some belief in and outside Africa that for developing countries in general, and Africa in particular, development and implementation of environmental law is not a priority. This belief prevails strongly in many quarters of the industrialised countries. In fact, the view is held either out of blatant ignorance or by some renegade industrialists who fail to appreciate Michael Royston's 1979 thesis that Pollution Prevention Pays.2 That group, for obvious reasons, must have their correspondent counterparts in Africa to provide hope that industries rejected as derelict in the West or inoperable due to rigorous environmental regulation, can find homes to which they can escape and dump their polluting industries.

International environmental law is often closer to home than we know, affecting the food we eat, the products we buy, and even the air we breathe. Drawing on more than two decades of experience as a government negotiator, consultant, and academic, Daniel Bodansky brings a real-world perspective on the processes by which international environmental law develops, and influences the behavior of state and non-state actors.

. . . an impressive volume and the editors have put together a high quality collection. Research Handbook on International Environmental Law ought to be an invaluable reference source for both teachers and students of international environmental law in the years to come. Web Journal of Current Legal Issues This wide-ranging and comprehensive Handbook examines recent developments in international environmental law (IEL) and the crossover effects of this expansion on other areas of international law, such as trade law and the law of the sea. The expert contributors offer analyses of foundational issues in IEL, such as responsibility for environmental damage, sustainable development and the precautionary principle, alongside studies in topical subject areas including marine protection and the law of international watercourses. This Research Handbook offers an in-depth analysis of IEL, both as a field of law in its own right, and as part of the wider system of international law. It gives a comprehensive view of IEL in all its forms and complexity. With thorough examination of specific environmental regimes and compliance mechanisms, this Handbook will be an indispensable resource for legal scholars, students and practitioners alike.

This volume seeks to provide the reader with a clear understanding to the way that protected areas are created, listed and managed in international law. In doing so, it provides a complete overview of the primary international and regional conventions in this area, and the decisions and resolutions that have come from them. In doing so, it provides a comprehensive examination of, inter alia, the World Heritage Convention, the Man and the Biosphere regime, the Ramsar (Wetlands) Treaty, and the Convention on Migratory Species. It also deals extensively with the important regional conventions in this area, covering Europe, Africa and the Americas. The regimes governing international maritime protected areas, and Antarctica, are also dealt with. In each area, the values, selection considerations, management, and compliance considerations are examined in detail and linked into recognizable examples from well known protected sites of international significance.

The quality of water, air and soil continues to decline. Poverty, population growth and unregulated industry combine to create pollution on an unprecedented scale. Yet despite overwhelming support for the Rio Declaration in 1992, international response to the crisis in the environment has been piecemeal and uneven. The developing canon of international environmental law is of vital importance to lawyers, decision-makers and environmental advocates. Practical lessons can be drawn from the range of approaches being taken to such universal issues as pollution control, liability and waste management. Familiarity with international case law and judicial decision-making can support and develop legal argument. International Environmental Law and Regulations draws together expert practitioners from Argentina, Belgium, Canada, England & Wales, France, Greece, Italy, Mexico, Norway, Scotland and Singapore to provide a statement of the progress of environmental regulation in their jurisdictions. The practical analysis includes coverage of: the application of international and Community law national, regional and local regulation leading case law trends in judicial decision-making civil and criminal liability As a source of instructive information and ideas, the book will be of value to specialists in environmental law, in-house lawyers in industry, environmental advocates and academic lawyers.

Measures for regulating the behaviour of nation states in relation to the global environment have increasingly taken the form of international treaties and conventions. Many have argued that this has proved to be an ineffective way of halting unsustainable development, for the provisions of these agreements are either too weak or are flouted regularly by the parties concerned. This volume seeks to address the crucial question of how compliance with these agreements could be encouraged effectively without damaging the fragile political consensus that is emerging on environmental issues. With extensive use of case studies, Improving Compliance will make stimulating reading for all students and researchers working in this area, as well as for anyone concerned about the effectiveness of international environmental measures.
