An Ecological Approach to International Law: Responding to the Challenges of Climate Change
Routledge, 2008 M01 28 - 464 pages
An Ecological Approach to International Law shows that international environmental law is fundamentally flawed and not equipped to meet global challenges. The book examines international legal responses to global climate change by analysing key concepts such as the doctrine of state sovereignty, the law on state responsibility, environmental rights and common heritage of mankind.
