Harnessing Foreign Investment to Promote Environmental Protection investigates the main challenges facing the implementation of environmental protection and the synergies between foreign investment and environmental protection. Adopting legal, economic and political perspectives, the contributing authors analyse the various incentives which encourage foreign investment into pro-environment projects (such as funds, project-finance, market mechanisms, payments-for-ecosystem services and insurance) and the safeguards against its potentially harmful effects (investment regulation, CSR and accountability mechanisms, contracts and codes of conduct).

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the legal regime governing fresh water, its protection, management, and uses. It looks at the status of water in international law, taking into account its multi-faceted nature, whether environmental, social, cultural, or economic. It examines the universal and regional dimensions of the regulation of water, including issues surrounding the treatment of water in environmental, human rights, trade, and investment law. It addresses links between international, regional, and national water regulatory frameworks, and assesses the role of dispute settlement mechanisms and procedures in the area of water. The role of the concerned institutions is analyzed as well as the contribution of non-state actors. Arguing that the protection and management of water has permeated and is linked to all sectors of human activity, the book promotes an integrated perspective by not only taking account of the legal instruments that specifically dealwith water issues, but also of other legal principles and rules that have an impact on water management and protection.

Lawyers have to adapt their reasoning to the increasingly global nature of the situations they deal with. Often, rules formulated in a national, international or European environment must all be jointly applied to a given case. This book maps the analysis lawyers require when confronted by the operation of several laws in different contexts, and demonstrates how this enhances legal reasoning.

Les accords commerciaux préférentiels ont le vent en poupe ; ils se multiplient à une vitesse et avec une vigueur impressionnantes. Cette montée en puissance soulève nombre d’interrogations auxquelles l’ouvrage répond: quelles sont les raisons d’un tel phénomène ? Est-il sans précédent dans l’histoire ? Quels en sont les principaux contours ? Quelles conséquences pour le système commercial multilatéral ? Dans son premier volet, cet ouvrage étudie l’histoire depuis le XIXe siècle jusqu’à la période contemporaine, les caractéristiques profondes ainsi que les objectifs des politiques commerciales qui y recourent de plus en plus volontiers. Dans un second volet, l’attention est centrée sur le caractère préférentiel de ces accords, puis sur l’approfondissement et l’élargissement de la libéralisatiom commerciale dont ces accords sont souvent les vecteurs. Le troisième et dernier volet s’intéresse à l’épineuse question des rapports entre ces accords et l’Organisation mondiale du commerce, incarnation du multilatéralisme dans ce domaine, rapports examinés sous l’angle systémique d’abord, puis sous celui du règlement des différends ensuite. La coexistence peut être pacifique voire harmonieuse, ou s’avérer conflictuelle et préjudiciable à l’un ou l’autre. L’ouvrage intéresse les magistrats, avocats, arbitres, juristes d’entreprise, cadres et directeurs d’entreprise, professeurs et chercheurs.

Faced with environmental challenges which are becoming more serious, urgent, and global, international law has emerged as an essential instrument for State cooperation and as an influential element in the harmonization and revitalization of domestic laws. At the same time, international law has had to adapt: law-making has become more innovative and fresh mechanisms for implementation have been created. Over the last 30 years, international environmental law has therefore experienced significant normative and institutional change. This book emphasizes these changes, showing how environmental challenges have shaken, and sometimes transformed, the core categories and concepts of international law. Thus, in addition to being a book about environmental law, this is a work which also charts the way in which international protection of the environment has disrupted general international law. The book is the fruit of a longstanding collaborative project carried out at the Center for International and European Studies and Research (CERIC). Proceedings of an international symposium held under the aegis of the French Society for International Law in Aix-en-Provence in June 2009 drew the first conclusions and was previously published in French: Le droit face aux enjeux environnementaux (Paris, Pedone, 2010). This English text examines and extends upon the lessons learned.
