About this book

Waste tends to be understood as the potentially polluting and unsolicited by-product of our daily lives, a source of risk for the environment and human health. Nonetheless, a transboundary market for wastes as valuable raw materials and second-hand goods has emerged, and states ship wastes to specialised disposal and recycling sites abroad.

This book provides a thorough analysis of the Basel Convention and the applicable OECD and EU frameworks of regulation. The author adopts a legal approach that encompasses the environmental, human rights, and WTO law aspects of waste trade. It explores the potential of the concept of "sustainable development" to integrate divergent regulatory approaches under the umbrella of the WTO in particular, and identifies crucial elements of a more comprehensive and sustainable solution for international waste trade.
