Critical Acclaim
‘Lee Paddock's Advanced Introduction accomplishes a major feat: it brings together the full range of constantly evolving environmental enforcement challenges into a set of clear explanations and feasible recommendations. Its well-organized chapters untangle enforcement’s overlapping dimensions, from inspection and judicial procedures to private management and international supply lines, and examines each in a systematic, informed, and applicable way. This book is an essential foundation for anyone studying environmental law and an invaluable reference for anyone working in the field.’

‘Paddock’s comprehensive overview uses examples from around the world to illustrate environmental compliance and enforcement challenges and opportunities. The book blends theory and practice in discussing foundational matters such as enforcement strategies, tools, and mechanisms. It also explores innovations in citizen enforcement, the relationship between enforcement and environmental justice, and the role of private environmental governance. This book will be an essential resource for anyone interested in environmental enforcement, from the uninitiated to the most experienced practitioners, policymakers, and academics.’
