Is 'sustainable development' a charade sold to an increasingly misled public? This book presents a wide-ranging, penetrating critique of sustainability and what it actually means. The author argues that despite the rhetoric of socially and environmentally sustainable development and the ever-increasing number of legislative environmental policies, the real issues such as consumption, population growth and equity are either sidestepped or manipulated in international policy and law. Analyzing the main areas of concern - economic growth, market structure, trade, aid, debt, security and sovereignty - he shows that the entire development structure and the underpinnings of the debate are leading down quite a different path to that intended by sustainability.

The Contribution of International Fisheries Law to Human Development: An Analysis of Multilateral and ACP-EU Fisheries Instruments examines whether and how legal fisheries instruments encompass a normative consensus on human development. Focusing on both multilateral (treaties and soft-law) as well as the ACP-EU bilateral fisheries instruments, Nienke van der Burgt provides a detailed analysis as to whether these different types of legal instruments reflect the principles of equity, poverty eradication and participation, which have been identified as key indicators of human development. Moreover, specific attention is paid to whether explicit reference is made to the small-scale fisheries sector and to the role of women. Concluding that despite increasing evidence of the potential and significant contribution of fisheries towards human development, legal fisheries instruments seem to be struggling with the incorporation of a human development centred approach, The Contribution of International Fisheries Law to Human Development, is essential reading for all those involved in the fields of international environmental law and sustainable human development.

The world is entering a period of unprecedented environmental and political change. By mid-century, climate change will cause dramatic ecosystem shifts. Hundreds, if not thousands, of species will disappear from the earth including icons like polar bears, gorillas, Asiatic lions and bluefin tuna. For many cultures ’species’ are ’place’. As our cultivated global community erodes, international triage decisions about species and local ecosystems will commence and if we are not alert, these decisions will be made on our collective behalf, without local perspective or accountability. Global Environmental Governance, Civil Society and Wildlife illuminates a clear pathway for the environmental, non-governmental community to transition into a co-governance role. Many NGO diplomats have deeper experience and more technical knowledge about policy discussions than their government counterparts and are unburdened by sovereign constraints. The book puts forward the perspectives of developing world civil society and the case that it must play a more significant role in future decision making. Civil society from around the world must be welcomed by governments at the global environmental governance table if we are to hear birdsong after the storm.

International Law Cases and Materials fills the gap in current international law casebooks by introducing students to all relevant international materials together with materials most relevant to Australian international lawyers. While international in scope, the text provides a sustained focus on Australias place in the international community and Australian perspectives on international legal affairs. Relevant Asian regional perspectives and approaches are also canvassed. The book begins with an introduction to the basic legal concepts and actors in the international legal system. These include international institutions, the criteria for statehood, the principles concerning acquisition of state territory, and the impact of recognition of states and governments. The sources of international law are discussed as these form the basis from which the rules and principles of international law are drawn, as are the rules of state responsibility pursuant to which violations of international law are attributed to states. Two further areas - the law of treaties and the relationship between international and domestic law - are then examined in separate chapters. Finally, several substantive areas of law, namely the use of force, international environmental law, the protection of human rights, the law of the sea and international trade law are explored. This book takes a more integrated approach to international law than other texts. The authors have taken the best from both international and Australian writings to complement the primary materials that are included in the text. The extensive use of contextual material and clear and concise commentary, linked together by critical analysis, case studies, notes and problems, provokes thought and discussion and provides a solid basis for an understanding of international law.
