Documents in International Environmental Law

Edited by: Maria Gavouneli, Ilias Plakokefalos

International Environmental Law is now a standard course for both undergraduate and postgraduate law students all over the world. Written in an accessible format, this volume follows the essential structure of environmental regulation and provides a clear picture of the mechanics of the system. The book is comprised of: (I) a "general part" (general principles, procedural obligations, and civil liability and non-compliance procedures); (II) selected "sectoral regimes" (the fundamental elements of the natural environment - habitat, sea, atmosphere, freshwater resources, and polar regions - and the primary regimes of man-made intervention - nuclear power, chemicals, and waste; (III) "interface regimes" (trade and the environment, human rights and the environment, and armed conflict and the environment). It covers not only instruments of global application, but also selected documents of regional origin with a far more widespread impact. The interactive melange of the global and the regional is a particular advantage of the book. The collection will appeal to students and lecturers alike, as it covers all aspects of a course on the topic. It is also a useful desk reference for research students and scholars, as well as environmental and international law practitioners. (Series: Documents in International Law)
