Corporate Accountability in International Environmental Law

Oxford University Press

This chapter frames in more theoretical terms the discussion on available mechanisms at the disposal of international organizations for encouraging or ensuring compliance with standards in their present legal form. The existence of implementation mechanisms is a factor upon which the effectiveness of legal tools, whether binding or not, depends. All means to enforce or otherwise facilitate the effective implementation of standards are considered. Attention is drawn to the ‘indirect’ forms of enforcement such as international networks for the diffusion of information, verification and monitoring that ensure ‘compliance’, understood as the actual respect of substantive requirements of the agreements in the actual behaviour of those concerned.

Keywords:   secondary rules, enforcement, implementation, international networks
