International Equity and Global Environmental Politics: Power and Principles in U.S. Foreign Policyby Paul G. Harris
Pub. Date: 08/01/2001
Publisher: Taylor & Francis
International environmental equity is an issue that has rapidly gained global significance. Defining this concept as a fair and just distribution of the benefits, burdens, and decision-making authority associated with international environmental relations, this text shows how it has started to permeate global environmental politics and, importantly, U.S. foreign policy. Discussing the implications for the world of embracing - or failing to embrace - international equity, as a core objective of global environmental policy is an essential exercise, which this book undertakes with diligence and vigour. Written in an accessible style, this is essential reading for students of international relations and world politics, global environmental policy and American foreign policy.
