Making Law Work
Posted in Uncategorized | 0 comments
Making Law Work: Environmental Compliance & Sustainable Development is a compilation in two volumes of the best literature on topics related to compliance with and enforcement of laws to protect the environment and promote sustainable development, as selected by the International Network for Environmental Compliance and Enforcement (INECE), in cooperation with the Institute for Governance and Sustainable Development and its affiliated Program on Governance for Sustainable Development at the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management, University of California Santa Barbara.
Drawing from books, journals, articles, speeches, papers by practitioners, and INECE Conference Proceedings, Making Law Work represents a bridge between the worlds of academics and practitioners, exposing practitioners around the world to some of the best literature from the fields of law, politics, international relations, economics, and the social sciences in an attempt to help us analyze why our legal systems are not yet strong enough to deal with our worsening environmental problems.
Making Law Work provides insights into a framework for diagnosing what currently ails international and domestic environmental governance, offers suggestions for making improvements, and raises questions for further exploration. If knowledge truly is power, then Making Law Work has the potential to be a very powerful book.
The insights, concepts, and strategies contained in Making Law Work will empower actors of all types at all levels – individuals, NGOs, the media, businesses, certifiers, lawyers, scientists, financial markets, government regulators, legislators, courts, networks, negotiators, international tribunals, development banks – to take action to promote sustainable development, enforce compliance with environmental law, and make law work.

Praise for Making Law Work
“A vital and important book that will become required reading for all who share our concern about the Earth’s environment and who know that enforcement and compliance are the bedrock of the rule of law and sustainable development.”
“This book provides important lessons for treaty negotiators, parliamentarians, regulators, prosecutors, judges, and NGOs. An indispensable tool … to protect the Earth’s vital ecosystems and to promote sustainable development.”
“This book may be the difference between making environmental law work and finding ourselves falling over the precipice…. Read it and join the battle….”
“This important work comes just in time to help the world understand what we need to do to improve enforcement and compliance.”
“Enforcement and compliance are essential to the rule of law and sustainable development. Drawing on its global expertise, INECE brings together … a collection of the best literature which will be enormously helpful to practitioners and scholars alike as they work to improve compliance with environmental law at all levels.”
“A valuable resource for judges, prosecutors, investigators, and all who care about the Earth and want to improve the profession of compliance and enforcement.”
“Sustainable development can only be built on a foundation of hard, often thankless, on-the-ground enforcement and compliance work. Making Law Work both celebrates that hard work and provides an invaluable guide to how strong environmental laws, well enforced, can improve our quality of life and promote sustainable development.”
“A must-read for anyone seriously interested in the future of environmental governance and a credit to INECE and the Institute.”
“Offers empowering ideas for action…”
