Global Environmental Law at a Crossroads

by R. V. Percival, J. Lin,

‘This is a remarkable publication wherein leading world’s environmentalists discuss in an informed and transparent manner the global, regional and national environmental challenges. The unique character of this book is that it links global issues of the environment (sustainable development; the creation of the World Environmental organization) with national issues such as the right of nature in Ecuador. The book also presents a critical overview of Rio+ 20 Conference. The particular feature of this outstanding book is its very analytical and straightforward approach to environmental issues adopted by its authors. Such a book is a must to all environmental lawyers, scholars and practitioners and in particular for a young generation of people who are interested in our planet.’ - Malgosia Fitzmaurice, Queen Mary University of LondonThis timely volume considers the future of environmental law and governance in the aftermath of the "Rio+20" conference. An international set of expert contributors begin by addressing a range of governance concepts that can be used to address environmental problems. The book then provides a survey of key environmental challenges across the globe, before finally giving an assessment of possible governance models for the future.
