International Criminal Environmental Law

International Criminal Environmental Law

(p.439) Chapter 20 International Criminal Environmental Law
The Reality of International Law

René Provost

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the basic tenets of existing international criminal law and the possible rationale for the existence of an international criminal environmental law. It evaluates what indications of the emergence of a principle of international penal responsibility for environmental harm can be found in positive international law. It analyses the non-existence of international criminal environmental law and suggests that there is danger in seeking, through criminalization, the panacea to all enforcement problems.

Keywords:   criminal law, international law, environmental law, criminalization, penal responsibility
