To further the study of differential treatments within international environmental agreements, this chapter looks into the several different aspects of differential treatment in international law. Also, since differential treatment may manifest itself either implicitly or explicitly and through different degrees, this chapter also examines the different needs for such differential treatment. This chapter presents an illustrative survey that shows how differential treatment is evident in different parts of international law, how differential treatment would probably bring about better effects across different countries in different international regimes, and how various controversies are encountered in attempts to establish and push through with such differential treatment. In this chapter, differential treatment in industrial countries is distinguished from that in developing countries so that the factors and characteristics of the two setups — in terms of various laws like economic law, international development law, human rights law, disarmament law and international arms control — may be emphasized.

Keywords:   differential treatments, international law, international development law, developing countries, industrial countries, economic law, human rights law, disarmament law, international arms control
