The Making of International Environmental Treaties: by Gerry Nagtzaam

By Gerry Nagtzaam

During this interesting publication, Gerry Nagtzaam questions why a few regimes search to maintain and safeguard a few components of nature from improvement, a few search to properly deal with sure components of nature for improvement, while others enable the reckless exploitation of nature with no accounting for the implications. He tracks the destiny of the 3 over-arching norms of environmental politics - protection, conservation and exploitation, utilizing case experiences on whaling, mining in Antarctica and tropical trees to demonstrate how overseas political battles to form environmental regimes unavoidably lead to clashes among those competing environmental norms.
