Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with global environmental law. It shows that changes in environmental legal scholarship and the teaching of environmental law, in general, have to be evaluated as promising and exciting. Environmental law, in its traditional sense of domestic law instruments, mainly command-and-control and financial instruments, applied by public authorities to improve and protect the natural environment, partly orchestrated, or at least influenced by international and regional law, works pretty well with regard to localised or regional environmental issues, but does not seem to be effective in addressing the global environmental problems that one faces today. To understand what is going on in the field of environmental law, a transnational approach is required, focusing on the interplay between domestic, regional and international law, as well as on the interplay between state and non-state law.

Keywords: domestic law; environmental legal scholarship; global environmental law; global environmental problems; international law; natural environment; non-state law; regional law; state law
