This original and sometimes controversial book is concerned with international regulation, negotiation and policy-making in the environmental realm. In particular, it focuses on toxic chemicals, and the ways in which risk associated with hazardous substances is assessed, and the policy outcomes that result. A key assertion is that the international arena is more favourable to environment groups while the domestic arena tends to favour industry. Perhaps surprisingly, the author posits that environmental organisations such as Greenpeace, while occupying the moral highground, oversimplify complex issues. While this can help stimulate action, the author argues it can hinder the development of effective policies at the international level. Grounded in major international case studies, the book is based on research into many international agencies and takes a multidisciplinary approach.
