International environmental law in United States courts

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In contrast to international human rights law, where US courts have played a significant role, few cases have been brought in US courts involving international enviornmental law. Instead, international environmental issues have been addressed politically, through executive and legislative action. This article surveys the relatively negligible case-law to date and identifies some of the reasons why more cases have not been brought.
