(p.51) V Religion
International Environmental Law, Policy, and Ethics

Alexander Gillespie

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers the role of religion in the environmental protection debate. Religion is still a very persuasive force in international discourse. At the global level, religion remains to be recognized as having a fundamental influence on the development and practice of international law. The role of religion as a catalyst for environmental concern is now becoming more obvious with the links between conservation and religious obligations being united by many theological thinkers. The chapter ends by looking at the limitations of the religious view. Importantly, not everybody subscribes to the religious view.

Keywords:   environmental protection debate, international law, environmental concern, religious view, Christian stewardship
