This authoritative handbook addresses how the Precautionary Principle is implemented in different sectors, and examines its successes, failures, strengths and weaknesses in implementation. Sectors and subjects covered include chemicals, GMOs, the Law of the Sea, fisheries and nature conservation, and the book draws on cases in the EU and Nordic countries, where use of the Principle is highly advanced.
Ultimately, the book provides an indispensable appraisal of the question as to whether the Precautionary Principle is relevant to avert major environmental and health risks, and how and when it can be used successfully. Includes an annex of legal instruments that enshrine the Precautionary Principle.
