Contribution to Book
Environmental Law and Policy
This chapter examines the various ways in which IEL has shaped the design and application of Canadian domestic environmental law. It first provides an overview of the importance and the evolution of the international law responses to current and emerging environmental challenges before reviewing concrete cases in which Canadian environmental norms and principles can be directly linked to IEL. Finally, it reviews how Canadian courts are engaging with international law principles.
