In recent years, the debate on the establishment of a new international agency on environmental protection - a 'World Environment Organization' - has gained substantial momentum. Several countries, including France and Germany, as well as a number of leading experts and senior international civil servants have openly supported the creation of such a new international organization. However, a number of critics have also taken the floor and brought forward important objections. This book presents a balanced selection of articles of the leading participants in this debate, including both major supporters and opponents of creating a World Environment Organization. The volume is especially relevant to students and scholars of international relations, environmental policy and international law, as well as to practitioners of diplomacy, international negotiations, and environmental policy making.


Frank Biermann is Professor of Political Science and Environmental Policy Sciences at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. He also heads the Department of Environmental Policy Analysis at the university's Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM), and is the Director of the Global Governance Project (GLOGOV.ORG). Steffen Bauer is the coordinator of the MANUS research group ('Managers of Global Change: Effectiveness and Learning of International Organizations') within the Global Governance Project (GLOGOV.ORG), and a doctoral candidate in political science at the Freie Universitÿt Berlin.
