LAW 2839 - International Environmental Law


The course uses transnational environmental issues, such as climate change, stratospheric ozone depletion, and biodiversity (endangered species), to explore the interrelationship among such threats to the global environment and national or subnational regulatory activities. Prior to the 1992 Rio Conference, these subjects had already achieved a high degree of recognition and substantial action on an international and national level. The course covers the subject matter in legal, economic and political contexts. The study of these subjects includes an introduction to the factual background of the problems to provide a common basis of understanding; an examination of pertinent existing laws, treaties and statements of intent, and their economic and political ramifications; and discussion of the future based on an analysis of current and past t rends, including consideration of the degree to which contemporary approaches are likely to be successful in avoiding serious harm to the global environment.
