The MIT Press

This chapter examines the global climate regime, the idea of international environmental justice, and Critical Legal Studies (CLS) to assess the possibility of using international environmental laws to advance the ideals of justice expressed in the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). First, it examines the development and application of international law in a climate change mitigation regime, considers how international environmental justice is conceptualized, and then applies lessons from CLS to assess the prospects of promoting justice.

Keywords:   global climate regime, international environmental justice, Critical Legal Studies, CLS, international environmental laws, justice, UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, UNFCCC, climate change
