The author addresses such regimes from both a conceptual and theoretical point of view as well as using comparative empirical evidence from issue areas such as marine pollution, acid rain, ozone layer depletion and global climate change. This book will be welcomed by students and scholars interested in environmental political economy and institutions, and by policy makers and practitioners involved in the negotiation process
