International Environmental Law & Policy
Last Updated Date:   3 June 2022

5 Credits,  Semester 1

Course Description:
International law traditionally concerns itself with the relations between states, yet environmental problems transcend borders. International environmental law demonstrates how international norms can affect national sovereignty on matters of common concern. The course surveys international treaties concerning the atmosphere and on land and sea, the conservation of nature and resources, and connections to trade, investment and economic development. Institutions and principles to promote compliance and cooperation are also examined at the international level and also within the state - to consider the question of whether environmental concerns are generating "global law”. This is a growing area of law-making and implementation.
