Secondly, the development and application of IEL in the context of specific regimes is explored, including atmosphere, oceans, and hazardous substances. Finally, the volumes examine how IEL interacts with other international legal regimes, including international trade and human rights. All the contributions reflect a broad diversity of views and cover the most important key areas currently debated in IEL.
