A Handbook of Globalisation and Environmental Policy, Second Edition

Edited by Frank Wijen, Kees Zoeteman, Jan Pieters and Paul van Seters

in Books from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: In the current era of globalisation, national governments are increasingly exposed to international influences that present new constraints and opportunities for domestic environmental policies. This comprehensive, revised Handbook pushes the frontiers of theoretical and empirical knowledge, and provides a state-of-the-art examination of the multifaceted effects of globalisation on environmental governance.
