Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Emerging Principles of International Environmental Law presents a table of contents, foreword, acknowledgments, about the author and list of abbreviations. This is followed by the Introduction. It talks about the sustainable development advocated by the World Commission on Environment and Development in 1987 and reinforced by the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development in 1992 and reiterated by the Johannesburg Declaration on Sustainable Development in 2002, has remained elusive to much of the international community. International environmental law (IEL) has come a long way since the Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment. This conference, which was the turning point in the history of IEL, laid the foundation for many of the developments that took place during the subsequent years.
