There is huge interest in International Environmental Law, matched by a widespread uncertainty as to which elements of International Environmental Law are really normative, how it all fits with other apparently competing norms, and whether it is an agenda being imposed by the industrialised world on developing nations. These essays have been carefully chosen to represent diversity of opinion and perspectives that are fully global. The editor's long introductory essay does much to deepen understanding of this complex but essential field of international law.
