International Law for the Environment is a comprehensive exposition of contemporary international environmental law and the governance institutions that implement it. Part I sets out the drivers of threats to the planet's air, water and social support systems, the philosophical, economic, and scientific foundations of the legal responses to these threats, and the customary and treaty-based legal regimes that have emerged. These regimes are placed in the context of general international law. Part II introduces the students to the major treaty-based regimes such as those addressing transboundary air and water pollution, the control of pollutants which deplete the ozone layer, global climate change, the protection of oceans and polar regions, the disposal of hazardous wastes outside the country of origin, the protection and allocation of fresh waters and the restoration of degraded aquatic ecosystems, and the conservation of biological diversity. Also addressed is the linkage between agricultural production and the environment. Part III examines the integration of environmental considerations into international regimes such as human rights and environmental justice, international trade law and the financing of sustainable development. Environmental governance is discussed in Part IV, together with material on international environmental institutions and the international legal system. Throughout the book the incorporation of international environmental law principles and treaty obligations into national judicial decisions and legislation is stressed.

This dynamic casebook takes an interdisciplinary approach in an analytical framework that can be applied to any international environmental legal problem. By studying both legal and non-legal issues, students gain a full and meaningful understanding of this global problem and its legal solutions. International Environmental Law and Policy is the perfect vehicle for tackling the challenges of international environmental law from a global perspective. International Environmental Law and Policy leads students from fundamental issues to sophisticated applications in four main parts: The Nature of International Environmental Issues - Basic Concepts and Context explores non-legal issues such as: global population; intergenerational equity; risk assessments; the tension between industrialized and developing countries; and the underpinning legal issues of public international law and international institutions: Pollution Control offers a detailed analysis of the 'precautionary principle,' the right to a clean environment, general norms applicable to environmental agencies, general principles of international responsibility for environmental harm, and environmental warfare. Natural Resource Management presents detailed discussions of the 'Harmon Doctrine,' the World Heritage Convention, options for conserving biologicla diversity, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), and the protection of whales and other species Trade and Finance delves into dispute settlement in the World Trade Organization, the North American Free Trade Agreement, multilateral development banks, debt relief approaches, and funds for the environment.

Drawing specifically on the international climate regime, Simone Schiele examines international environmental regimes from a legal perspective and analyses a core feature of international regimes - their ability to evolve over time. In particular, she develops a theoretical framework based on general international law which allows for a thorough examination of the understanding of international law and the options for law-creation in international environmental regimes. The analysis therefore provides both a coherent understanding of the international climate regime and a starting point for further research in other regimes.

Increasingly, environmental rights are being recognized as enforceable human rights, both substantive and procedural. Environmental law can no longer be viewed merely as a matter for policy choices in legislation. This new casebook shows how international and national court cases in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas have begun to interpret treaties, national constitutions, and human rights legislation to protect the environment through the recognition of rights. For the first time, these rich developments are brought together in a book suitable as a primary text for classes and seminars.

Highlights of the third edition include expanded coverage of climate change; extensive use of international cases to illustrate key legal doctrines and concepts; and a new chapter that explores the concept of "ecological commons governance" and its significance for the future of international environmental law. Most of the problems in the book have been revised extensively, with entirely new problems on whaling, geoengineering, electronic waste exports, chemical exports (DDT and asbestos), environmental trade restrictions, nuclear safety, transboundary air pollution, biodiversity and more.
