Abstract

The purpose of the chapter is to consider some of the underlying justifications for international legal action in relation to the conservation of natural resources and environmental protection, more generally. It reflects on those foundational aspects of international environmental law - concepts such as common concern and common heritage - that are at the juncture of legal framework, sovereign discretion, collective interests, and normative obligation
