Reviews - What do customers think about Sustainable Justice: Reconciling Economic, Social And Environmental Law?

Important View of Emerging Transnational law  May 11, 2005
Sustainable Justice: Reconciling Economic, Social And Environmental Law edited by Marie-Claire Cordonier Segger, C.G. Weeramantry (Martinus Nijhoff: Brill Academic) is based on a collection of essays and on the conference papers from Sustainable Justice 2002, which CISDL hosted in partnership with the McGill Law Faculty, the UNEP, the World Bank and the International Law Association, from June 14 - 16, 2002 in Montreal, Canada, prior to the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg, South Africa.
This book offers a cutting-edge scholarly discussion of judicial and legal methods to reconcile national and international economic, social and environmental law for sustainable development. A diverse anthology of perspectives from developed and developing countries, the book contains contributions from judges, international lawyers and other experts with a wealth of experience in the emerging field of sustainable development law. It presents negotiators, scholars and jurists with a lively, thought-provoking and highly current discussion of international legal debates related to sustainable development. The final part discusses future developments in sustainable development law, based on the results of three recent international processes. Sustainable Justice weaves a diverse and intriguing collection, reflecting a vigorous yet practical international legal debate of crucial importance to our common future.

Sustainable Justice: Reconciling Economic, Social and Environmental Law, the book, was possible due to the efforts of many people. In particular, the editors owe great thanks to the speakers, chairs and participants at the 2002 Sustainable Justice Conference in Montreal in 2002. They also owe thanks to the many sponsors and contributors to this conference. They also wish to acknowledge the particular work of several dedicated McGill law students, both Audrey DeMarsico and Michelle Toering, and also Sarita Keirouz and Jessica Adley, as well as Chris Petit of the WICPER in Sri Lanka, who worked hard on the conference papers and on the book. An Academic Workshop was held at the Oxford University Faculty of Law on June 02, with keynote Hon. Charles Gonthier, Wainwright Senior Research Fellow at the McGill Faculty of Law and former Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, and discussants Richard Tarasofsky of the Royal Institute for International Affairs Sustainable Development Programme, and Dr. Bronwen Morgan of the Oxford Centre for Socio-Legal Studies [Academic Workshop programme], and thanks are owed to all participants at this workshop whose ideas strengthened the content and approach of this new book.
