This edited volume is part of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature ( iucn ) Academy of Environmental Law Series, and collects selected papers presented at the Academy’s fifth annual colloquium, held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 2007. The annual colloquia of the Academy provide a forum for environmental lawyers from around the world to exchange ideas. The large number of contributors to this volume and their diverse provenance are a testimony to this dialogue, with papers by scholars from Africa, Europe, and the Americas. Sustainability is the thread connecting the twenty papers in the volume, ranging from conceptual investigations on the origin and evolution of the notion of sustainability; philosophical and practical enquiries into environmental rights and liability; and the use of sustainability criteria in natural resources, energy, climate, and nature-conservation law.
