Show Summary Details


The last two chapters were concerned with judicial methods of implementing transboundary air pollution obligations. The limitations of judicial supervision as well as the inherent problems attendant upon the adjudicatory process have been noted. This chapter examines the actual and potential role of institutional frameworks for supervising compliance as found in air pollution and other relevant environmental agreements. The techniques of supervision considered in the chapter rest on the assumption that problems such as those posed by transboundary air pollution raise large questions of public order, which cannot always be solved through the imposition of delictual responsibility and judicial methods of dispute settlement.
