Overview

Environmental problems do not respect international boundaries; they affect the entire globe, and dealing with them is a matter for international political negotiation, law and institutions. Greening International
Law assesses the extent to which the international community has so far adapted to address environmental problems, and examines the fundamental changes needed to the structure and organisation of the legal system and its institutions. The contributors to this volume have all played a central role in the development of international environmental law over the past decade, and their essays will be of interest to all those professionally,
academically or individually concerned with the resolution of environmental problems.

Editorial Reviews

David Pearce
Global environmental problems demand global, cooperative solutions. That means rethinking international law. Building on their formidable international experience, Philippe Sands and his colleagues have launched us into that rethink.
Environmental Politics
..the delights of this book are its readability and topicality... recommended reading for international lawyers and environmental scientists alike.
