About this book

The book focuses on compliance in eight countries (Brazil, Cameroon, China, Hungary, India, Japan, the Russian Federation, and the United States) and the European Union and on five major accords: the UNESCO Convention for the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage (1972), the International Maritime Convention on the Prevention of Marine Pollution by Dumping of Wastes and Other Matters (1972), the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (1973), the International Tropical Timber Agreement (1983), and the Montreal Protocol on Substances That Deplete the Ozone Layer (1987). This pioneering venture will be a major resource for scholars interested in compliance in general, in international environmental issues, and in international law.


A framework for analysis, Harold K. Jacobson and Edith Brown Weiss; how compliance happens and doesn't happen domestically, David Vogel and Timothy Kessler; managing compliance - a comparative perspective, Abram Chayes et al; contingent knowledge - implications for implementation and compliance, Sheila Jasanoff; the five international treaties - a living history, Edith Brown Weiss; the United States - taking environmental treaties seriously, Michael J. Glennon and Alison L. Stewart; the European Union and compliance - a story in the making, Alberta M. Sbragia and Philipp M. Hildebrand; Japan - consensus-based compliance, James V. Feinerman and Koichiro Fujikura.
