About this book

This publication examines the role of international law in promoting a resolution of Central and East European transboundary environmental disputes. To accomplish this objective the book examines a wide variety of environmental disputes, with particular emphasis on the Gabckovo Nagymaros Project dispute between Slovakia and Hungary, and melds international legal theory and international relations theory to develop an analytic framework for understanding the role of law, and assessing its future application.
