The Oxford Handbook of Comparative Environmental Law

Edited by Emma Lees and Jorge E. Viñuales

Oxford Handbooks

  • This Handbook provides the first comprehensive account of comparative environmental law, along with a complete conceptual framework for the field.
  • A variety of leading experts adopt different perspectives for the comparative analysis of the environmental law systems of 15 countries and the European Union
  • This wide-ranging volume includes chapters on major environmental problems (such as atmospheric pollution, nature conservation, and climate change policies) as well as examining the infrastructure of environmental law and policy instruments (including command and control regulation, market mechanisms, and informational techniques).
  • Approaches environmental law as a single overall system, giving readers an analytical focus which remains relevant regardless of changes in the law
  • Provides an overall methodological frame to guide further research
