Global environmental issues are an important part of international relations.
The Environment and International Relations
International environmental law is neither a separate nor a self-contained system or sub-system of law. Rather, it is simply part of international law as a whole. Nevertheless, unlike World Trade Organisation WTO law, the law of the sea, or human rights law, international environmental law has never been systematically codified into a single treaty or group of treaties. There is neither a dedicated international environmental organisation nor an international dispute settlement process with the ability to give it coherence. This article provides the link between international environmental law and WTO law, the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea and the Convention on Biological Diversity, environment and human rights, and dispute settlement and applicable law. Keywords: World Trade Organisation , international environmental law , international law , human rights , UN Convention , Biological Diversity Convention , environment , dispute settlement.

Theoretical Perspectives on International Environmental Politics
Read PDF Read PDF In addressing the international politics of the environment this book is concerned with the processes by which inter-state agreements on the environment are negotiated; with the rules and regimes established to facilitate environmental co-operation; with the international institutions that have been, or need to be, created to implement those rules; and with the conflicting political forces on whose resolution any successful regional or global environmental initiatives must depend. The global environmental issues discussed in this volume include climate change chapters by Richardson, Beckerman, Cooper, Shue, Susskind and Ozawa, and Maull , ozone depletion Bramble and Porter, and Maull , marine dumping Stairs and Taylor , deforestation Hurrell, Myers, and llramble and Porter , and biodiversity Myers. The objective is not to provide detailed scientific treatment of the nature of the major environmental challenges facing the world, but rather to explore the international political forces that work to complicate the negotiation and implementation of rational environmental policies between states, to analyse the strengths and weaknesses of various institutional mechanisms by which states have sought to co-operate in managing environmental problems, and to assess their relevance for the future. Underlying this analysis is a central question: Can a fragmented and often highly conflictual political system made up of over sovereign states and numerous other actors achieve the high and historically unprecedented levels of co-operation and policy coordination needed to manage environmental problems on a global scale?

Environment and International Politics: Linking Humanity and Nature
Advances in International Environmental Politics pp Cite as. Such ways of organizing tend to create the sense of homogenous, internally consistent perspectives, and perhaps more importantly fail to investigate the specifically theoretical aspects of the ideas — that is, they describe the arguments offered by differing perspectives but do not get to the heart of the assumptions underpinning them or ask questions about the internal logic and how one gets to the perspective from these assumptions.

Environment is now a key component of international relations and, given the rising attention climate change receives in particular Welzer, , a matter that now has high priority in diplomatic circles. With states in danger of disappearing below rising seas and major disruptions to water supplies and food systems projected for future decades if steps to curb greenhouse gas emissions are not taken soon, environmental matters have become central to contemporary international politics, and to their academic study Webersik, Environment emerged after the Cold War as a priority matter for scholarly analysis because scholars are concerned with matters of pollution, conservation and resources; but also because there are interesting analytical puzzles surrounding how the international system deals with them and the changes resulting from the introduction of new modes of governance, institutions, agencies, knowledge and norms. How all these aspects might be studied as international relations is also not a simple matter, but given their importance they have increasingly impinged on scholarship.
However, this is not enough, as a full appreciation of environmental politics calls for theoretical insights into other fields that go beyond the repertoire of inter-state cooperation and diplomacy. This paper will delve into how environmental conflict is happening and it is and will indeed shape international politics in ways that traditional theories of IR cannot explain, by assessing several modes and sites of global environmental governance.

Beginning in , Environment International became an open access journal and further expanded its scope into new areas of research to become a multi-disciplinary journal publishing high quality and novel information within the broad field of 'Environmental Sciences'. Coverage includes, but is not limited to, the following research topics: 1 Public Health and Health Impact Assessment, Environmental Epidemiology Prof. Thanh Huong Helen Nguyen. The journal has published before on many of the above mentioned topics, and thus they are familiar to authors, readers, reviewers and editors.
