Class Details

This class will examine the legal structures and mechanisms that have been created to address international environmental problems–ranging from agreements between neighboring countries to full-fledged multilateral environmental agreements. The class will consider a number of examples of successful and partly successful international legal agreements, possibly including the United Nations Law of the Sea Treaty, the CITES convention on trade in endangered species, and the Montreal Protocol on ozone-depleting chemicals. It will also discuss the vexing current negotiations over climate change and greenhouse gas emissions. The class will consider topics such as: the historical background for international environmental law; the forces affecting success and failure of negotiations; enforcement mechanisms; compliance and dispute resolution mechanisms.
