Abstract

At the intersection between what constitutes international environmental law (IEL) and how IEL can create effective legal mechanisms for environmental justice in the global South is the book’s entry into the academic discussion. Incidentally, this collection is not merely a book; much more, it represents a movement stemming from Third World Approaches to International Law (TWAIL), which has operated on the margins of international law. Likewise, IEL finds itself at the boundaries of international law but is gaining a new tide of support in its bid for legitimacy, equality, and human dignity. International Environmental Law and the Global South understands and recognizes these pressures, and it sheds new light on this often undervalued area of international law.
