International Environmental Agreements: Politics, Law and Economics is a multidisciplinary, expertly evaluated journal that focuses on the theoretical, methodological and practical dimensions of collaborative solutions to international environmental problems. The review examines both formal legal agreements, such as multilateral treaties, and less formal cooperation mechanisms such as ministerial declarations and producer-consumer agreements. The review covers a wide range of environmental and resource issues, including biosecurity, biodiversity loss, climate change, desertification, forest protection, ozone depletion, cross-border pollutant flows, and management of marine and freshwater resources. The review provides a forum on the role of political, economic and legal considerations in negotiating and implementing effective governance strategies.
