Summary

This book addresses the various new channels of multilateral environmental governance that have appeared within an increasingly globalised international system. While states ultimately continue to make and enforce international law, they are increasingly dependent upon multilateral institutions, organised science, NGOs and social movements, and business and industry for formulating their views and for conducting policy. This volume focuses on clarifying the key actors and the governance functions they perform in addressing environmental threats.
