This volume contains the papers from the interdisciplinary symposium ""Enforcing Environmental Standards: Econonic Mechanisms as Viable Means?"", organized by the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law. The symposium centred around the necessity to introduce to international law, characterized by a lack of central enforcement mechanisms, new mechanisms to enforce international standards for the protection of the environment.;Modern international environmental law has established several economic mechanisms to inforce international standards for the protection of the environment, ranging from trade restrictions, through economic incentives, to an economically-induced interstate co-operation.
