Review quote

"This volume provides an essential glossary of critical terms and concepts in the field of international environmental politics for diplomats, analysts and students. The interdisciplinary array of expert authors provide terse and authoritative overview of the key concepts and debates that have defined the field of international environmental governance over the years. The entries carefully survey the intellectual ecosystem of the concepts applied to understanding and managing our global environmental crisis." -Peter M. Haas, Professor of Political Science, University of Massachusetts Amherst, USA





"In a truly unique way, this book helps to connect the dots and navigate between the concepts, ideas and schools of thought in global environmental policy today. As environmental issues climb higher on the global agenda, I would highly recommend this book to all who wish to better understand the insights of sustainable global governance." -Connie Hedegaard, European Union Commissioner for Climate Action


"The global community is at a crossroads in respect to addressing climate change. A solid understanding of global environmental governance empowers people to better shape positive democracy that determines a safer future. This book makes a valuable contribution to societal understanding and societal change. Those who care about the world we leave to our children should take inspiration from its many and varied contributors drawn from so many disparate but interlocking disciplines." -Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary, United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change


"Editors Morin and Orsini chose contributors for their uniquely global perspectives, high level of expertise, and varied backgrounds. The book's title is especially appropriate because each essay discusses a significant aspect of the field. This volume is valuable for scholars and for advanced students who need to thoroughly understand this subject. Additionally, it could be used as a training guide for practitioners in diplomacy. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above." -C. W. Bruns, California State University--Fullerton, CHOICE Reviews, February 2015
