A comprehensive examination of the way in which the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) is implemented and policed. CITES is one of the oldest international environmental agreements and has been responsible for some striking conservation successes. But, given the way it has evolved, there are also some critical weaknesses that unscrupulous countries and commercial interests can exploit, especially regarding information, institutions and enforcement. The convention needs reform and this book gives a trenchant critique, including practical and effective recommendations for change.

The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) is the best known and most controversial of international conservation treaties. Since it came into force 25 years ago, debate has raged over its most basic assumptions. CITES treats the international trade in wildlife as the most important threat to the continued existence of wild species. It offers a prescription of trade bans and restrictions for endangered species. However, it is now generally acknowledged that for most species habitat loss is a much more significant threat. Some argue that the CITES remedy actually exacerbates the problem by removing the incentive to conserve wildlife habitat. This collection of essays, the first of its kind, charts the controversies and changes within CITES. It provides case studies of the way CITES has dealt with particular species and notes the growing role of the South in shaping the direction of the treaty. It considers the role of sustainable use, the precautionary principle and unilateralism within CITES. Finally, it examines options for the future of CITES. Implicit within a number of the contributions is the recognition that questions of wildlife conservation cannot be divorced from wider issues of land use, development and social justice. This book provides an essential resource for policy makers, practitioners, academics and students concerned with conservation, development and trade.

This book is a review of the development of the WTO dispute resolution procedure and the power and influence it has gained over the practises of the member countries as well as in other international treaties. The book addresses the development of environmental competency in the WTO and examines the arguments of those who oppose WTO rule making with impacts on the environment. The WTO’s interactions with multilateral environmental agreements are considered and recent WTO cases including the 2011 US/Mexico tuna dispute and the US sea turtles decision are analysed in detail. In examining how an international organisation which was established with a specific purpose in mind has come to interact in fields beyond its original remit, James Watson demonstrates how the dispute resolution system at the WTO has come to work in a judicialised manner, operating with an informal system of precedent. This has led to the contracting parties placing more reliance on the decisions of the dispute panels and appeal body when considering policy options, with WTO rulings increasingly influencing the behaviour of national legislatures in regard to the environment. The book goes on to make concrete recommendations, based on existing practise in the WTO dispute resolution procedure, which could enhance decision making in environmental cases heard by the WTO. The book argues that this could be achieved with straightforward amendments to the WTO, based on existing practices endorsed under the WTO for other policy considerations. The WTO and the Environment will be of particular interest to academics and students of International and Environmental law.

Heritage Law in Australia

Internationally, Australia has the most developed heritage jurisprudence because of the use of the World Heritage Convention in Federal and State disputes, and at the State and Territory level, the laws have achieved a rare consistency across the jurisdictions. Until now, however, there has been no comprehensive treatment of this subject. Heritage Law in Australia fills this gap. It is a clear and concise text that will be of use to anyone wanting a general overview of the development of heritage law in Australia. The text offers a systematic analysis of the range of natural and cultural heritage law by discussing heritage law not only by reference to a limited sets of Acts of the Australian Parliaments, the Heritage Acts, but as illustrating what is happening more generally in environmental law and regulation.

Since 1991, when a panel of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) found that U.S. import restrictions on tuna from countries with high dolphin mortality violated GATT's trade rules, an entire field of law has emerged called “Trade and the Environment.” This book provides a thorough and balanced assessment of this developing area of law that affects consumer, regulatory and trade policy choices for governments around the world. It encompasses trade agreements and the evolving jurisprudence, from the 1991 tuna-dolphin case up to actions on agricultural subsidies in late 2004.This book is designed to teach students with no prior background in trade law or environmental law. It is also designed to be equally accessible to students and professors from civil law as well as common law jurisdictions. Opening chapters present key trade and environmental policy theories and concepts, and introduce the structure of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and its process for adjudicating trade disputes. Substantive chapters comprehensively assess the GATT's core obligations and the “general exceptions” to those obligations for certain types of environmental measures. WTO agreements such as the Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade, the Agreement on Application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures, the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures, and the Agreement on Agriculture are covered. There are substantial excerpts from decisions in the key trade-environment disputes, including the famous cases addressing protection of sea turtles in shrimp fisheries, growth hormones and risk assessment, natural resource and agricultural subsidies, and bans on the use of asbestos. Unresolved issues such as ecolabels and genetically modified foods and the legal status of trade measures in multilateral environmental agreements are also discussed. In addition, the book has a chapter on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and its environmental side agreement, including investment provisions and investor-State arbitration.Throughout, the book presents policy arguments about the connections between trade and environmental protection and the linkage with broader concerns about sustainable development and the economic and environmental prospects for developing countries. It also considers the work of international institutions created to address these connections and the role of public participation in both disputes and trade agreement negotiations.Because the complexity of trade and environment issues often obscures the real significance of the decisions, a special feature of this book is extensive background material and commentary and numerous “Questions and Discussion” points. These features are designed to make trade policy and trade jurisprudence accessible to teachers and students alike.

The last decade has seen a revolution in global energy. First, we saw explosive growth in demand from Asia's rising powers, which fueled fears about scarcity and conflict. But we've also seen an American revolution in technology and markets, resulting in a dramatic increase in sup-ply. This is strengthening America's hand in the world—but it's not without complications. There are major security consequences of these shifts. Among the most consequential are China and India, Asia's emerging giants, which are increasingly exposed to political risks associated with energy risks, as well as the energy flows, pivoting to Asia. Meanwhile the great powers struggle to balance their need for fossil fuels with a mounting effort to tackle climate change. The top powers, and the United States above all, face a stra-tegic choice: whether to use energy as a weapon of geopolitics, or as a tool of a stable order. CONTENTS Introduction 1.

In this publication, a number of recognized practitioners and scholars undertake to explore the realities and the conceptual underpinnings of environmental compliance mechanisms. In a relatively short period of time, such mechanisms were introduced in a wide range of new and existing environmental regimes. Yet, little is known about their function in practice and their implications. This is puzzling when considering, that the new mechanisms considerably depart from traditional patterns of counteraction and dispute settlement. Instead they build on partnership and cooperation and include a wide range of possible reactions, which range from those having coercive power to supportive measures. Quite a number of those mechanisms and their functioning are explained in the publication in order to lay ground for some cross-cutting analysis, which covers inter alia reporting, inspection and monitoring, supportive financial incentives and the interrelationship between compliance mechanisms and the principle of state responsibility and dispute settlement. Finally the role of non-governmental organizations is addressed. Practitioners and scholars in international environmental affairs and international law more generally will benefit significantly from the inside views and thorough reflection as provided for in this book.
