Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Ensuring Compliance with Multilateral Environmental Agreements contains the table of contents, preface and introduction of the book. The book explores the realities and the conceptual underpinnings of environmental compliance mechanisms. In the field of multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs), mechanisms of compliance control have been developed which are based on the idea of cooperation and partnership rather than on confrontation. These innovative mechanisms considerably differ from the traditional means of enforcing MEAs, such as sanctions, reprisals or authoritative judicial dispute settlement procedures, which so far have proved to be rather ineffective in international treaty practice. A better understanding of these mechanisms is the key to exploring options for their further improvement and for considering their wider application in the realm of international environmental regimes. Such understanding has to be based on a sound theoretical framework and the practical experience available.

Keywords: environmental compliance mechanisms; international treaty practice; judicial dispute settlement; multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs)
