  3. Shale Gas, the Environment and Energy Security

    Shale Gas, the Environment and Energy Security

    Ruven Fleming

  5. Multilateral Environmental Treaties

    Multilateral Environmental Treaties

    Edited by Malgosia Fitzmaurice, Attila Tanzi, Angeliki Papantoniou
    This volume of the Elgar Encyclopedia of Environmental Law presents an overview and selective analysis of multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs).

This book guides the reader through the multifarious conventional regulation of such areas of environmental protection, both at the global and regional levels, and details the path from the first post-war sectorial attempts at introducing international pieces of conventional environmental regulation to the booming of environmental instruments of the ‘90s and the recent fertile period of creation of new MEAs and their exponential growth.

  10. Compliance and Enforcement of Environmental Law

    Compliance and Enforcement of Environmental Law

    Edited by Lee Paddock, David L. Markell, Nicholas S. Bryner
    Countries throughout the world have adopted increasingly comprehensive environmental laws over recent years. Even so, immense challenges remain to achieve desired sustainability outcomes. One of the key problems in bridging the gap between legal requirements and sustainability outcomes is deficiencies in compliance and enforcement programs. Compliance and Enforcement of Enviromental Law, one of the constituent volumes in the Elgar Encyclopedia of Environmental Law, brings together leading experts to provide a detailed overview of compliance and enforcement tools. The entries are structured around key topics, including: common law causes of action, writing enforceable rules, monitoring and reporting requirements, administrative enforcement, civil judicial enforcement, assessment of civil penalties, and criminal liability. The book also addresses targeting efforts to maximize the value of limited resources and ways of measuring compliance to help ensure that results are obtained using the relevant tools. Learn More

  16. EU Environmental Law

    EU Environmental Law

    Geert Van Calster, Leonie Reins
    EU Environmental Law discusses the reality for legal practice throughout the EU, as environmental law of the Member States is becoming ever less 'national'.

This book gives readers a thorough overview of core European environmental law, with a section on the basic framework and principles, as well as on substantive law issues giving insight into the legislation in the different sectors and the most topical developments.

  17. From Environmental Action to Ecoterrorism?

    From Environmental Action to Ecoterrorism?

    Gerald Nagtzaam
    This book scrutinizes the growth of the ‘eco-terrorism’ movement operating on a global scale, focusing on the main groups and their more radical offshoots, both historically and those currently active. These include Earth First!, the Earth Liberation Front, the Animal Liberation Front and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. It critically examines how these groups form and how they have evolved, their key personnel, their strategies and tactics, principles, motivating philosophies and attitudes to violence. Specifically, the book seeks to understand whether such groups inevitably evolve from activists to militants to terrorists, as the literature suggests. Lastly, it considers the future of such groups, asking whether they will become more prominent as more people become ecologically aware and as global environmental conditions deteriorate, or whether such groups have peaked as a force for environmental change.

  20. Waste Management and the Green Economy

    Waste Management and the Green Economy

    Edited by Katharina Kummer Peiry, Andreas R. Ziegler, Jorun Baumgartner
    Can waste become a profitable business rather than a costly problem, creating green business opportunities and green jobs while protecting the environment? Might this reduce illegal trade and improper recycling of hazardous wastes by making the legitimate alternatives more attractive? Addressing these questions, this book examines environmentally sound waste management as a driver in the transition to a green economy, and discusses how this transition is challenged by technical limitations, weak regulatory environments and lack of financial incentives.
