The authors have a long and illustrious record on climate change issues, and the reader would naturally expect to find therein the highest level of scholarship, set out in meticulous detail, and the broadening insight the practical involvement with climate negotiations brings to any doctrinal work. The final product delivers on each one of these points. ... the authors have produced a comprehensive analysis of a whole new area of international law, both discussing in depth the full extent of its regulatory content and debating its interface with the complex and polycentric context of the other international regimes that embrace and, ultimately, reinforce it. And, in spite of their concerns as to the transient nature of their research in a subject more than usually prone to the trials and tribulations of political controversy, they have indeed given us a tour de force on the matter. Highly recommended. * Maria Gavouneli, Yearbook of International Environmental Law *
This book is a comprehensive and authoritative account of international climate change law by three towering figures in the field. In addition to providing incisive legal analysis of the climate regime as it has evolved from the Framework Convention and Kyoto Protocol to the recent Paris Agreement, it offers a broader perspective on climate governance and the intersection of climate change law with other areas of international regulation. The authors have brought their unique blend of academic expertise and practical experience of the climate regime to produce the definitive work on international climate change law, and what will surely be viewed as an instant classic. Written in erudite yet accessible fashion, this is a must have for students, scholars and practitioners of international climate change law. * Catherine Redgwell, Chichele Professor of Public International Law, University of Oxford *
On the "defining issue of our age", Bodansky, Brunnee and Rajamani offer the definitive guide to the history, process and substance of international law's effort to address climate change - and the prospects we face. Measured, authoritative and readable, to the Paris Agreement and, hopefully, beyond. * Philippe Sands Q C, Professor of Law, University College London *
I can think of no better team of "academic practitioners" to bring a balanced insight to this surprisingly complex and subtle area of international law. I am sure even those involved in these negotiations will find new nuance and insight in this book. * Jacob Werksman, Principal Advisor, DG Climate Action, European Commission *
