Decision-making, compliance and international environmental governanca: a legal analysis

Nils Goeteyn UGent (2012)
abstract
The thesis investigates the institutional arrangements for the governing of environmental affairs at the international level. The legal analysis looks at these arrangements from two perspectives: international institutional law and international treaty law. The first part of the thesis deals with the question if the existing United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) should be upgraded to a World Environment Organisation (WEO), a UN specialised agency for the environment. This debate is examined in depth, together with the legal challenges and consequences of such a reform. The second part of the thesis looks into the practice of the multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs). The normative powers of the plenary meetings of these conventions are investigated with special attention to compliance issues, followed by a detailed analysis of the possibilities, limitations and pitfalls of collaboration processes (clustering) between these MEAs.
