  2. International Environmental Agreements

    International Environmental Agreements

    Edited by Peter H. Sand
    There has been an exponential growth in international environmental treaty-making over the past fifty years, to the point of ‘treaty congestion’ – with a total of more than 1,300 multilateral (global and regional) agreements on the topic and close to 3,000 bilateral ones currently in force. The collection of seminal articles essays assembled in this volume address this phenomenon from a variety of disciplinary perspectives: international law, political science, and ‘ecological economics’. The objective of this collection is comparative analysis, with a view to identifying common features and common problems of transnational environmental regimes, in light of their historical evolution, their application and effectiveness in practice, and possible lessons learned in their institutional ‘interplay’ with each other. With an original introduction by the editor, this single volume will be an essential resource for researchers and policy makers alike. Learn More

    Sustainability Economics

    Edited by Giles Atkinson, Sam Fankhauser
    The unprecedented advances in economic development witnessed over the past decades cannot continue if economic progress comes at the expense of the natural environment.

Environmental sustainability, an inherently interdisciplinary topic, is analysed from the perspectives of applied microeconomics, environmental and resource economics, ecological economics, development economics and public economics. Together with an original introduction by the editors, this volume is indispensable for anyone interested or working in the field. Learn More

  15. States, International Organizations and Strategic Partnerships

    States, International Organizations and Strategic Partnerships

    Edited by Lucyna Czechowska, Andriy Tyushka, Agata Domachowska, Karolina Gawron-Tabor, Joanna Piechowiak-Lamparska
    In post-Cold War international relations, strategic partnerships are an emerging and distinct analytical and political category critical in understanding the dynamics of contemporary strategic cooperation between states and International Organizations. However, the idea of strategic partnerships has remained under-theorized and overshadowed by the alliance theory. Addressing this clear-cut gap in the IR/FPA literature, this book originally endeavours to theorize and empirically test the analytical model of strategic partnerships as a new form of sustainable international cooperation in times of globalized interdependence and turbulence.
