Global Governance of the Environment concludes with succinct and insightful considerations of the role of environmental principles in changing international law and politics This topical book will appeal to researchers, academics and students of international environmental law and politics, international relations, as well as domestic environmental law.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This book will likely be of interest to people with a background in sociological or international relations theory of the constructivist sort, and a particular interest in policymaking as a social learning process, the role of principles in international environmental law, or the social aspects of global environmental politics.' -- Candice Carr Kelman, International Environmental Agreements: Politics, Law & Economics
'This book is an important contribution to the relationship between international law and politics. . . highly recommended to scholars working at the interface of international environmental law and politics, particularly those with a solid theoretical grounding. . . Akhtarkhavari's Global Governance of the Environment should be required reading for advanced students of international environmental law and politics, whatever their concern.' -- Simon Marsden, Review of European Community and International Environmental Law
'This book makes an interesting contribution to the literature on environmental principles in terms of their functions and influences on international law and politics. As well, it assists in the better understanding of the process of change at the global level. Whilst the topic of environmental principles is not new, Akhtarkhavari provides a refreshing perspective, and in doing so the book will be of interest to a range of scholars with research interests in international relations, politics, and law.' -- Erika J. Techera, Climate Law
'A scholarly text breaking down the international debate of law on a grander scale that the world faces in maintaining and recovering its environment from current and past abuses. . . Global Governance of the Environment is a cornerstone of any environmental or international studies collection in community and college libraries.' -- The Midwest Book Review
