International Judicial Practice on the Environment : Questions of Legitimacy, Hardback Book

International Judicial Practice on the Environment : Questions of Legitimacy Hardback

Edited by Christina (Universitetet i Oslo) Voigt

Part of the Studies on International Courts and Tribunals series

Description

More and more environmental cases are being heard and decided by international courts and tribunals which lack special environmental competence.

This situation raises fundamental questions of legitimacy of the environmental practice of international courts.

This book addresses inter alia questions of who has legal standing to bring an environmental claim before an international court, on which legal norms is the case decided and whether judges have the necessary expertise to adjudicate environmental cases of often complex nature.

It analyses which challenges international courts face, which possibilities they have and which advances international judicial practice has been able to make in protecting the environment.

Through the prism of legitimacy important insights emerge as to whether international courts and tribunals are fit for addressing some of the most pressing global challenges of our time.
