An Ecological Approach to International Law offers the first major critique of international law based on environmental ethics. Taylor examines international legal responses to global climate change by analysing key concepts such as the doctrine of state sovereignty, the law on state responsibility and environmental rights. By introducing the new principle of common heritage of life, the author lays the foundations for international law and policy to meet global environmental challenges.
