- We can order this
This book investigates how sustainability informs key principles and concepts of domestic and international law. It calls for the recognition of ecological sustainability as a fundamental principle to guide the entire legal system rather than just environmental legislation. To this end, the book makes a contribution to global environmental constitutionalism, a rapidly growing area within comparative and international environmental law and constitutional law. This 2nd edition has been fully revised and updated to take account of recent developments and new case law. The book will be a valuable resource for students, researchers and policy makers working in the areas of environmental law and governance.

Klaus Bosselmann continues his tradition of excellent scholarship in probing the origins and contemporary relevance of sustainability by comprehensive reference to international law and policy, and national implementing regimes. The new edition reveals why sustainability remains a core value to guide law and governance in its pursuit of ethics and justice, and how the principle may be aligned to resilience, integration, human rights, and environmental constitutionalism. It provides a compelling account of an important dimension to the ecological condition of humanity.
