درباره این کتاب:
In the book, I criticize the current corpus of International Environmental Law (IEL) as inadequate to effectively and in a timely manner protect our global environment. I explore this inadequacy by tracking two factors: first, under the current global governance system, IEL is influenced primarily by political and financial factors, rather than scientific inputs; second, the lawmaking processes that prevail in IEL follow an old-fashioned paradigm, where political entities hold the legislative power, and experts, including natural and social scientists, retain only consultative or review powers, without any decision-making competence. Since the traditional lawmaking models consistently fail to protect the natural environment, I argue that experts, legitimized by their knowledge of issues related to the protection of our global environment, and consequently public health should have a stronger say in the lawmaking process at the international level. The present book explores the ways by which such delegation of lawmaking powers can occur based on the redesign of the international lawmaking models, while respecting the necessary requirements of democracy and accountability.
