Over the past three decades, a series of international treaties have entered into force to address pressing global concerns - social and economic development and environmental protection. New regimes on climate change, biodiversity and biosafety, desertification, agriculture and seeds, trade and investment liberalization have been established to implement global commitments related to sustainable development, many with nearly universal membership. Successful domestic implementation of these international treaty regimes is one of the most significant challenges facing international law today. Although much has been written on the content and form of treaty law, there is relatively little that examines the transition from international legal theory and treaty texts to domestic regulation and practice. This new series of books addresses this need. It provides a serious contribution to ongoing global debates by conducting a detailed analysis of how myriad new treaty regimes covering the most pressing concerns of the future can be made to work in practice.
