International Environmental Law, Policy and Ethics

Oxford University Press, 2000 - 217 páginas
This book is concerned with the question of why the environment is protected in the international arena. This question is rarely asked because it is assumed we all want to achieve the same ends. However, in his innovative study of international environmental ethics, Alexander Gillespieexplodes this myth. He shows how nations, like individuals, are creating environmental laws and policies which are continually inviting failure since such laws are riddled with inconsistencies and are ultimately contradictory in purpose. Specifically, he seeks a nexus between the reasons why nationsprotect the environment, how these reasons are reflected in law and policy, and what complications arise from these choices.
