Cases of Conflict focuses on times of dispute as important moments in the development of international environmental law. Conflict tests international law-both its content and its relevance become clearer in times of controversy-but conflict can also help shape the law.

Drawing from a growing body of scholarship connecting the fields of international relations and international law, Cases of Conflict focuses on six transboundary disputes to demonstrate how they have influenced the development of international environmental law and policy.

Embracing their rich detail and real-world messiness, this book looks to develop a better understanding of the true content and potential of international environmental law.
