About the Authors
  • The Chernobyl disaster, "Amoco Cadiz" oil spill and the Colorado River dispute are examples of an activity conducted by one state which has serious adverse effects in the territory of another or in global common areas. This book details the international rules and compensation procedures for governmental officials, international lawyers and jurists. It covers existing laws on international liability and the underlying legal issues that require further development.

    • Comprehensive study of the subject
    • Written from the perspective of a developing country
    • Analytical study of the policy considerations of the legal rules
