Book Description

December 20, 2001 0742510468 978-0742510463
'Trade and the environment' issues have engaged powerful non-governmental organizations in the United States, Europe, and elsewhere. Environmentalists and labor union leaders have been concerned that falling international trade barriers, along with international trade organizations associated with free trade, are undermining environmental protection. In contrast, business leaders and developing-country governments have been concerned that purported environmental regulations may be used as disguised barriers to trade. Those with competing perspectives on these issues have clashed in scholarly journals, the editorial pages of leading newspapers, the halls of government—and in the streets. This is the first book that systematically compares how each of the world's major international trade organizations has been addressing environmental issues. It provides background, up-to-date information, and analysis on the development of trade-environment rules in the World Trade Organization, the European Union, the North American Free Trade Agreement, the Free Trade Area of the Americas, the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation forum, the International Organization for Standardization, and other key organizations. All of the essays are both policy-oriented and conscious of their theoretical underpinnings. Together they offer a range of realist, liberal, and institutionalist perspectives. The book concludes by suggesting that the treatment of environmental issues in international trade organizations is best explained by understanding the trade and environment interests of the world's most powerful countries.

Editorial Reviews

Review

A real contribution to a field that, as the Battle in Seattle showed, will only grow in importance. [The editor] has assembled the key people in the subject. . . . This could well become the standard reference in the field of trade and environment. (Salzman, Jim)

Richard Steinberg and his collaborators present an analysis that is well argued and likely to provoke a lively discussion. (International Studies Review)

Each of the essays [in this book] provides comprehensive and thoughtful analysis of the treatment of environmental issues in its subject trade agreement and its environmental law coverage or lack thereof. This book is highly recommended for anyone with a serious interest in either side of the trade-environment equation. (World Trade Review)

For all the fashionability of interdisciplinary scholarship, neither international law nor international relations pays nearly enough attention to the comparative study of institutions. The Greening of Trade Law makes an important and lasting contribution to both disciplines. (Slaughter, Anne-Marie)

Each of the essays [in this book] provides comprehensive and thoughtful analysis of the treatment of environmental issues in its subject trade agreement and its environmental law coverage or lack thereof. This book is highly recommended for anyone with aserious interest in either side of the trade-environment equation.... (World Trade Review)
