Hey: Advanced Introduction to International Environmental Law

Ellen Hey (Erasmus Univ. - Law) has published Advanced Introduction to International Environmental Law (Edward Elgar Publishing 2016). Here's the abstract:
This Advanced Introduction provides both an overview and a critical assessment of international environmental law (IEL) written by one of the leading authorities in this field. An invaluable entry point to this complex area of the law, the book pinpoints essential principles and institutions and distils the vast and often technical corpus of legal doctrine whilst also offering insights that stimulate critical thinking. Covering the origins, substantive content, institutional structure and accountability mechanisms of IEL, the book discusses substantive and procedural fairness, thus exploring questions of distributive justice, accountability and legitimacy.
