International sustainable development law is characterized by creative, dynamic instruments and institutions with fresh potential for legal solutions that integrate environmental, economic, and social dimensions of legal problems. In particular, sustainable development law often employs the most recent scientific methods, drawing upon indigenous and traditional knowledge, uses new measures for technology transfer, and provides for corporate responsibility and public-private partnerships. Sustainable development law seeks more integrated, effective, and efficient approaches to environment, social, and economic regulation. These procedural aspects of sustainable development law regimes are engaged by each of the research agendas discussed above. Understanding the effect of these “cross-cutting issues” on sustainable development law regimes helps to explain the integrative potential of sustainable development law principles, for these themes serve as vehicles for weaving together environmental, economic, and social priorities.

Keywords:   sustainable development law, technology transfer, public-private partnerships, research agendas, cross-cutting issues
