Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of this book, which provides the theoretical framework for and analyses the doctrinal foundation of sustainable development as a principle of integration in international law. The book attempts to apply the principle to the practical scenario of normative conflicts between climate mitigation measures and norms of the multilateral trade regime under the world trade organization (WTO) with the aim of testing the theory by investigating into its capacity to solve such conflicts. The concept of sustainable development demands an active transition on all levels of modern life. It requires innovative and integrated solutions that are based on the ultimate thresholds of the environment to provide essential natural functions.

Keywords: climate mitigation measures; international law; sustainable development; world trade organization (WTO)
