About this book
This volume provides a wide ranging survey of the current treatment of environmental issues in international relations. A range of key international processes is considered: from the formulation of issues through to the monitoring and implementation of international agreement. Also contained are chapters on conference diplomacy, the role of international organisation, the role of ideology in negotiations and the important interaction between trade and environmental issues. A critical treatment of the debate between neo-realism and liberal institutionalism is also included.
