This book explores the meaning of sustainability and investigates how it informs the principles and values guiding domestic and international law. It argues for the recognition of sustainability as a fundamental legal principle akin to justice and fairness.

This 2nd edition has been fully revised and updated to take account of recent developments and new case law. The book will be a valuable resource for students, researchers and policy makers working in the areas of environmental law and governance. Reviews of the 1st edition: 'Klaus Bosselmann's book is deeply thought-provoking and should be read by all scholars and students of environmental law, as the debate on sustainability and its governance is definitely not over. His book makes a valuable contribution to some of the most urgent issues facing humankind, and offers a fresh perspective to the prevailing, often tired debates about sustainable development.' Human Rights and the Environment '…this book repays close reading, and re-reading, offering as it does both source of inspiration and valued resource for both research and teaching.' Journal of Environmental Law.
