Recently, the Peace Palace Library published the Ecocide Research Guide. This aspect of International Environmental Law has gained in importance in recent years as the activities of the human species are influencing the Earth's natural state in a way never seen before. This Guide provides the basic legal materials available in the Peace Palace Library, both in print and electronic format. Handbooks, leading articles, bibliographies, periodicals, serial publications and documents of interest are presented in the Selective Bibliography section.
The Guide was introduced in a workshop at the Institute for Environmental Security in The Hague last October. At the request of the world’s leading environmental lawyer Polly Higgins, present at the workshop, this unique Ecocide Research Guide now figures on the Earth Lawyers’ website and will hopefully be of service to legal experts dealing with environmental issues.
