International Negotiation Series, 12
(International Studies Library, 38)
Since the modern environmental movement began more than 40 years ago, negotiation has become an important way to resolve contentious environmental issues. Previous research often treats environmental negotiation as a static phenomenon and has not addressed how changes in the process impact resolution. Utilizing a dynamic model of negotiation and analysis of detailed case chronologies, this book explores how substantive and procedural moves by various actors - including parties, mediators, and enforcers -- prompt key turning points in environmental negotiations, and the consequences for negotiators' progress toward agreement. The study compares the typical patterns of process change in a set of domestic and international environmental cases, and offers potential implications for future research and empirically based recommendations for practice.
