The activities of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in international negotiations can constitute an incentive and a catalyst for the international community to address important issues, but can also represent a mere struggle for political influence and control. The negotiations which led to the adoption of the Convention on the Transboundary Movement of Hazardous Wastes and their Disposal encompassed both elements. They gave a prominent role to NGO participation in all phases of the negotiating process, especially to NGOs driven by environmental concerns and ``green issues.'' The Basel Convention and the negotiating process leading to its adoption became milestones in international environmental negotiations. However, the outcome of those negotiations as well as the role of all participants were significantly weakened in the course of this process.
