Overview

Revised and updated for its Second Edition, INTERNATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL LAW AND POLICY uses cases, materials, problems, and questions to introduce important issues to students with little or no background in either international law or environmental law.

This dynamic casebook offers a coherent presentation of a complicated area:
• the strong author team includes a diverse mix of scholars who are all active in the field
• offers an introduction to international law and institutions as a foundation for the study of global norms applicable to environmental problems
• presents International Environmental Law in the 21st century, covering traditional issues such as transfrontier pollution and shared resource allocation and examining newer and emerging issues such as climate change, biological diversity and human rights implications
• takes an interdisciplinary approach in an analytical framework that can be applied to any international environmental legal problem
• leads students from fundamental issues to sophisticated applications in four main parts: The Nature of International Environmental Issues, Pollution Control, Natural Resource Management, and Trade and Finance
• the thorough Teacher's Manual contains answers to all the exercises, problems, and questions in the book, as well as sample syllabi and a transition guide

The authors use a skillful blend of material to capture and hold student interest:
• detailed case studies that explore international environmental norms
• convenient appendices on Researching International Environmental law, International Organizations, and General Steps in Formulating Multilateral Agreements
• detailed discussions of the relationship between international and domestic implementation of law
• in-depth coverage of the liability, accountability, and valuation of natural resource damages

Changes for the Second Edition update the material and facilitate student understanding:
• new developments in international environmental law, including compliance with agreements, international health problems, biotechnology, developments in WTO and NAFTA, sustainable economic development, and accountability of international institutions
• the book is redesigned and condensed to make the materials readily accessible to a broad variety of students, both in the United States and abroad
• the rewritten introductory chapter now begins with a short history of international environmental law, the nature of international environmental problems, and political and economic contexts
• several new case studies demonstrate the major problems involved in international environmental law and highlight the many interests surrounding treaty negotiations
• readings throughout the book are revised and condensed, with editors' notes relating them to the case studies
• cases and materials are judiciously edited to conserve length while maintaining readability
