Overview

Earth Negotiations develops a phased-process model that can enable greater understanding of the process by which international environmental agreements are negotiated. By breaking down the negotiating process into a series of phases and turning points, it is easier to analyze the roles of the different actors, the management of issues, the formation of groups and coalitions, and the art of consensus building. Six discernible phases and five associated turning points within the process of multilateral environmental negotiation are identified and explained. The model is then used to see if there is anything that occurs in the earlier phases of negotiation that affects subsequent phases and if there is anything in the process that may have an effect on the outcome. The overall goal is to determine what lessons can be learned from past cases of multilateral environmental negotiation in order to help both practitioners and scholars strengthen the negotiating process and the quality of its results.

Solving global environmental problems requires an unprecedented degree of international cooperation, in terms of both scientific research and the harmonization of regulations achieved through negotiation. Chasek (Manhattan College) breaks the negotiation process down into six phases with five associated turning points, providing a model to enable greater understanding of how such agreements are worked out. Her goal is to determine what lessons can be learned from past cases to strengthen the negotiating process and the quality of its results. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
