The juxtaposition of diverging political and environmental trends at the turn of the millennium raises the following question: How can the current international treaty making system be corrected to ensure the design of effective treaties that will curb global environmental degradation?
The articles in this volume – the ninth in the series of PON Papers on International Environmental Negotiation – attempt to answer this question in an integrative fashion. They can be grouped into the following categories:
- The process of international environmental treaty making can be enhanced to incorporate methods and mechanisms that have been utilized in treaties conventionally seen as outside the environmental realm.
- Environmental concerns can be incorporated into global treates that until recently were seen as not contributing to environmental degradation.
- Effective corrections of traditional and non-traditional environmental treaties will require new actors, new technologies, and new ways of thinking.
Contributing authors include Maria Fariello, Tobin Freid, Tetsuya Nagashima, Kelly Sims, Ellen Shaw, Authur Ingolfsdottir, Ian Wadley, and Imke Wesseloh.
