Environmental issues do not recognize political boundaries, nor do they respect territorial integrity. Attempts to confront and resolve global and transboundary environmental problems have created the need for a legal forum to provide analyses of these issues. The Georgetown Environmental Law Review (GELR) was created to meet this need. Each publication contains timely information designed for the practitioner and scholar of international and environmental law and policy.
