Delegate Preparation and Participation in Conferences of the Parties to Environmental Treaties

Delegate Preparation and Participation in Conferences of the Parties to Environmental Treaties Abstract Little research has been conducted into the way delegations prepare for, and then participate in, plenary meetings under multi-lateral environmental agreements – a key administrative stage in the on-going development of international environmental regimes and law. Using the 1971 Convention on Wetlands of International Importance as the main example, this paper explores the external rules that shape the ‘internal modalities’ of states and their delegations as they undertake these stages. Other insights into delegate preparation and participation are sought from published accounts and internet based resources. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Community Law Review (continuation of International Community Law Review and Non-State Actors and International Law) Brill

Abstract

Abstract Little research has been conducted into the way delegations prepare for, and then participate in, plenary meetings under multi-lateral environmental agreements – a key administrative stage in the on-going development of international environmental regimes and law. Using the 1971 Convention on Wetlands of International Importance as the main example, this paper explores the external rules that shape the ‘internal modalities’ of states and their delegations as they undertake these stages. Other insights into delegate preparation and participation are sought from published accounts and internet based resources.
