This textbook provides a compelling and structured introduction to international environmental law in the Text, Cases and Materials genre.

The book uses extracts from a judiciously selected range of legal instruments and case law relevant to the protection and regulation of the environment in international law, alongside commentary from the author team and questions for class discussion, to facilitate student understanding and encourage engagement in the topic.

Divided into four main parts, it examines the main principles of international environmental law, the key areas of substantive environmental regulation, the implementation of environmental law and the relations between environmental law and other areas of international law.
 
Key Features:
 
·      Provides concise introductions to each topic of environmental law
·      Discussion questions and further reading sections guide students in applying their understanding
·      Familiarises students with the key legal materials, treaties and case law relating to international environmental law
·      Covers a wide variety of topics, including sustainable development, protection of the marine environment, atmospheric protection and responsibility and liability for environmental damage
 
By introducing and highlighting the most important instruments and cases of international environmental law, this textbook seeks to provide environmental law students and non-specialists with a rich and full understanding of the topic.

Critical Acclaim
‘A wonderfully accessible and necessary collection of essential materials in one of the most vital and dynamic fields of international law – this fine and intelligent editorial exercise will be of great utility to students, scholars and practitioners, a reminder of the vibrancy and depth of our efforts to protect our environment, and the challenges along the paths yet to be travelled.’
