Introduction to International Environmental Law stands out from its peers by presenting the discipline as a coherent system, as opposed to a collection of sub-topics, distinct treaty regimes and vague environmental principles. Providing sufficient background to be accessible to the ambitious reader without extensive training in public international law, it nevertheless contains the rigour, depth and nuance that we have come to expect from Koivurova. Professor Rachael Lorna Johnstone, University of Akureyri, Iceland.
This book provides a wonderful opportunity with beginners to understand the basics of international environmental law in a very succinct and interesting manner. Personally I liked the way Professor Koivurova provided illustrations and examples to demonstrate how this branch of law functions in reality. Professor Qin Tian Bao, Wuhan University, China.
Timo Koivurova has produced a compelling book on international environmental law. The need for such a text has been apparent for some time and the book Koivurova provides fills a crucial gap in the introductory literature. The reader is introduced to not only the substance of international environmental law, but also its foundations and the broader context in which it is situated. Such and approach is essential for a complete understanding of the nature of the law and challenges that it continues to address. Professor Don Anton, Australian National University, Australia.
