Chapter Summary

This chapter particularly concentrates on the international waste trade. It examines the normative matrix provided by three international legal regimes that converge on the particular global theme of international waste trading: international environmental law, international human rights law with references to international labour law, and international trade law. For this purpose, the most important elements for tackling the waste trade are assessed. After a brief overview on the regulatory frameworks' origins, the chapter addresses the fundamental pillars of the Basel Convention, the OECD Council Decision C(2001)107/FINAL and the European Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 on Shipments of Waste. The chapter shows that the international waste trade can be addressed from different vantage points in international law, which has become subject to increased diversification and specialisation.

Keywords: international environmental law; international human rights law; international trade law; international waste trade; OECD Council Decision; waste shipments
