‘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

This timely book examines the role of environmental principles in changing international environmental law and politics, and argues for the importance of integrating environmental principles in the global governance of the environment.

Afshin Akhtarkhavari includes both theoretical and jurisprudential analyses of the concept of environmental principles, as well as detailed case studies to examine their function and role in courts, and the differing approaches taken to soft law and regulation in international politics. 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.
