About the Authors
  • This study analyzes the evolution of permanent sovereignty from a political claim to a principle of international law, and examines its significance for such controversial issues as peoples' rights, nationalization, and environmental politics. Dr. Schrijver argues that corollary rights available through permanent sovereignty must be seen alongside the corollary obligations they also entail. He thus identifies new directions sovereignty over natural resources has taken in an increasingly interdependent world.

    • Major study of controversial area in international environmental law
    • Analyses the effects of UN resolutions on the environment, and in particular on sustainable development
    • Overview of key areas of international law, including investment law, the law of the sea and international environmental law
