Book launch

The author and commentators will discuss Caroline E Foster’s new book: Global Regulatory Standards in Environmental and Health Disputes  (Oxford University Press, 2021), funded by the Royal Society of New Zealand’s Marsden Council. The book addresses international courts’ and tribunals’ formulation of emerging global regulatory standards, balancing States’ international legal interests and determining the extent of international adjudicatory intervention in domestic regulatory decision-making. How are we to understand the role being performed by international courts and tribunals here? And how legitimate is a standards-enriched international law? For more information attendees are invited to visit the Oxford University Press website at Global Regulatory Standards in Environmental and Health Disputes.

Due to Covid restrictions and recommendations, this workshop will be conducted digitally.
