Chapter Summary

In recent times new ways and means have been developed with the aim of making the Parties of multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs) better comply with their contractual obligations. This chapter first elucidates the interdependence between the structure of the treaty regime and the way of organising treaty compliance. Next, it tries to identify those elements in compliance control mechanisms that MEAs, although diverse in nature, may have in common, e.g. regarding the procedure employed and the institutions that are entrusted with exercising particular functions of compliance control. Thirdly, there is a need to identify the role that non-governmental organisations (NGOs) may play in the various stages of the compliance control procedure. Lastly, the chapter deals with the question as to how the compliance control mechanisms of the various treaty regimes might be coordinated or even pooled together, e.g. by means of clustering single mechanisms of a certain type.

Keywords: compliance control mechanisms; multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs); non-governmental organisations (NGOs); treaty regimes
