About this book

Assesses the extent to which global environmental problems have been addressed by the international community so far. Promotes the need for changes to the structure and organisation of the international legal system.

Global environmental problems demand global, cooperative solutions. That means rethinking international law. Building on their formidable international experience, Philippe Sands and his colleagues have launched us into that rethink: Professor David Pearce, author of Blueprint for a Green Economy
