We are delighted to launch the second volume of Transnational Environmental Law (TEL) with a rich collection of pieces embodying a wide range of topics and methodological approaches. While the contributions focus upon specific topics, they also speak more broadly to issues that are pervasive in transnational environmental law: mutual influence between legal systems, multi-level integration, regime fragmentation and overlap, and the breaking down of traditional hierarchies as governance frameworks evolve against a backdrop of uncertainty, contestation and unpredictable change.
In addition to a collection of free-standing articles, this issue of TEL offers a new feature: within its covers, readers will find three articles that form part of a mini-symposium on ‘Global Environmental Risk Governance under Conditions of Scientific Uncertainty’. The symposium is introduced by Oren Perez and Reut Snir, the organizers of the conference from which the contributions were drawn, and showcases cutting edge research on the interaction between law and science in a transnational context.
