The papers in the present Review are based on lectures given during the eighth University of Eastern Finland1 – UNEP Course on International Environmental Agreements. It was held from 4 to 16 September 2011 at the Asian Institute of Technology, Bangkok, Thailand.
The aim of the Course is to equip present and future negotiators of multilateral environmental agreements with the information and experiences of others in the area of international environmental law-making in order to improve the impact and implementation of these key treaties.
The current Review is intended to provide practical guidance, professional perspective and historical background to decision-makers, diplomats, negotiators, practitioners, researchers and stakeholders working in the area of international environmental law- making and diplomacy specifically related to environmental governance. The Review aims to elucidate different approaches, doctrines and techniques in the field, including international environmental compliance and enforcement, international environmental governance, international environmental law-making, environmental empowerment, and the enhancement of sustainable development generally.
