Differential Treatment in International Environmental Law

Because of conflicting political, historic, and economic circumstances, there is an apparent difference between the communities of developing countries from those of their industrial counterparts. This is made evident through exploring the nature and framework of international environmental law, since there are significant discrepancies on to whom the responsibility of such issues is given, the measures to be taken, and the conditions of managing global environmental degradation. Despite such dissonance, there have already been several efforts for coming up with measures that would bridge the ideologies of both the developing and industrial states for establishing a common environmental agenda. However, such efforts are not without instances of normativity, ambiguities, and even uprisings. This chapter analyses, through observing the Stockholm, Rio, and Johannesburg international environmental conferences, how this dissonance has developed throughout history.
