Oxford Handbook of Comparative Environmental Law

Edited by Jorge Vinuales and Emma Lees

ISBN: 9780198790952 (Hardcover)
Publicado: 25 June 2019
Páginas: 1328

The study of environmental law has been relatively limited to date, with researchers either adopting a country-by-country approach, confining comparative analysis within the bounds of a basic common chapter structure, or addressing a specific area or problem in detail without seeking to encompass environmental law as a whole. The Oxford Handbook of Comparative Environmental Law fills a gap in the market by being the first comprehensive book to address comparative environmental law from an integrated perspective.

In addition to the common approaches to the subject, this Handbook also addresses the fundamental systems underpinning the diversity observed across countries as well as the interactions of environmental laws and instruments with their broader legal context. The latter has received limited attention to date, while the former is important not only because such interactions may heavily influence the effectiveness and resilience of environmental law but also because some non-environmental instruments, such as anti-poverty policies, may operate as extremely powerful vehicles of environmental protection.

Combining commentaries by leading academics as well as observations by a new generation of scholars who have different perspectives on the questions being addressed, this Handbook is a valuable resource for both academics and practitioners in the field.
