This chapter provides practical case studies of law and policy instruments at the various degrees of integration, illustrating challenges, and innovative methodologies that have been implemented over recent years. These case studies provide examples of international legal instruments and regimes at the various degrees of integration. Three case studies are presented. The first case study, of Sustainability Impact Assessment, is examined as an example of an integrated tool of sustainable development law, describing stakeholder participation strategies and recent innovations in integrated assessment procedures. The second case study surveys Regional Integration Agreements in the Americas for the use of innovative instruments to address environmental and social concerns in diverse economic integration arrangements, with notes on mechanisms to ensure increased openness. Finally, a third case study focuses on the application of international human rights instruments relating to economic, social, and cultural rights in order to address international economic and environmental concerns.

Keywords:   Sustainability Impact Assessment, sustainable development law, stakeholder participation strategies, Regional Integration Agreements, human rights instruments
