Brief 7: Building an International Court for the Environment: A Conceptual Blueprint
February 2013 by Philip Riches and Stuart A. Bruce
This Issue Brief considers the role and nature of existing and potential international dispute resolution fora in relation to international environmental law. It addresses impediments at the international level, such as limited access to justice by non-state actors and the lack of technical and scientific capability. As a conceptual paper, it highlights two possible remedial options: an International Environmental Tribunal and an International Environmental Court.
