More Information
This illuminating Research Handbook offers a detailed overview and critical discussion of the key themes and perspectives that characterize the burgeoning research area of transnational environmental law. It analyzes important sectors at the forefront of the field, including climate change and biodiversity.

Interdisciplinary and comprehensive, this Research Handbook provides stimulating and provocative discussions on transnational legal phenomena and the ways in which we can unpack their complexities. Bringing together varied perspectives from both leading and emerging scholars from around the world, chapters deliver methodological and conceptual frameworks for future research, whilst providing an original view on this emerging field of law. Contributors also pay special attention to the engagement of the field with multilevel governance and the involvement of non-state actors in legislative, regulatory and adjudicative processes.

Offering an accessible and broad-ranging guide to the field’s major themes and research strategies, the Research Handbook on Transnational Environmental Law will be an indispensable resource to scholars, students and practitioners in environmental and transnational law and social sciences seeking to understand the contributions of a transnational approach to environmental law.

Critical Acclaim
‘The Research Handbook on Transnational Environmental Law offers a striking illustration of the lag between a long-identified phenomenon of growing importance and the development of adequate conceptual categories to explain it and integrate it into the wider body of knowledge. Faithful to the specificity of EE Research Handbooks, this book is a major leap in closing this gap. It not only maps the field but also provides solid conceptual foundations for it. It is destined to be a classic.’
– Jorge E. Viñuales, Harold Samuel Professor of Law and Environmental Policy, University of Cambridge, UK

‘This book provides a state-of-the-art guide to the dynamic new field of transnational environmental law scholarship, focused on critical, cross-cutting issues such as climate change, biodiversity loss and marine pollution. Under the expert editorial guidance of Heyvaert and Duvic-Paoli, leading and emerging scholars from around the world provide an engaging and accessible introduction to the field’s key concepts, tools and debates. This Research Handbook is an essential resource for all those interested in environmental law and its broader transnational dimensions.’
– Jacqueline Peel, The University of Melbourne, Australia
