Abstract

The introductory chapter of this book begins by defining globalization and the novel notion of the “common concern of humanity” and describes the ethical, cultural, and economic considerations underlying protection of the biosphere. The chapter describes the evolution of the common concern of humanity in depth and describes the increased presence of international organizations. Next, the chapter introduces the Marrakesh Charter and its corresponding economic principles. The chapter concludes that there exists the need to create an international liability system for both states and individuals for environmental degradation caused by international trade.
