The Routledge Handbook of International Environmental Law is an advanced level reference guide which surveys the current state of international environmental law (IEL).
The Handbook features specially commissioned papers by leading experts in the field of international environmental law from a range of both developed and developing countries in order to put forward a truly global approach to the subject.
The Handbook offers a comprehensive and contemporary overview of international environmental law, as well as addressing emerging and cross-cutting issues of critical importance for the years ahead.
The book is split into six parts for ease of reference:-

- Implementing International Environmental Law - addresses the implementation of IEL and the role of various actors and institutions, including corporations, intergovernmental organisations and NGOs;
- Key Issues and Legal Frameworks - brings fresh perspectives of the common general issues of international environmental law, such as biological diversity and marine environmental law;
- Regional Environmental Law - explores the specific regimes developed to address regional environmental issues, considering the evolution, prospects and relationship of regional law and mechanisms to IEL;
- Cross-Cutting Issues - considers the engagement of international environmental law with other key fields and legal regimes, including international trade, human rights and armed conflict;
- Contemporary and Future Challenges - analyses pressing current and emerging issues in the field including environmental refugees and climate change, REDD and deforestation, and 'treaty congestion' in IEL.
