Globalisation and Ecological Integrity in Science and International Law

Editor(s): Klaus Bosselman, Colin Soskolne, Laura Westra

Book Description

This volume returns to one of the major themes of the Global Ecological Integrity Group: the interface between integrity as a scientific concept and a number of important issues in ethics, international law and public health. The main scholars who have worked on these topics over the years return to re-examine these dimensions from the viewpoint of global governance.
