Amsterdam, NL – We are pleased to announce that the latest issue of Environmental Policy and Law (EPL) has been published online. This issue includes six research articles covering law and policy from a global, regional, and national perspective. Editor-in-Chief Bharat H. Desai, PhD also details the journal’s upcoming plans in his editorial.

We invite you to watch out for the brand new section in upcoming issues of the journal entitled “Stockholm + 50 (2022) and Beyond” that will include content that leads the way to another milestone of 50 years of the first UN Conference on Human Environment in June 2022 (see more here).

Dr. Bharat explains in his editorial that “the process of defining the gravitas of EPL will gradually comprise providing a platform for publication of scholarly articles on issues of contemporary global environmental concern. EPL is primarily a global journal and hence it will carry scholarly works that have global significance. Still, it will try to accommodate innovative ideas and high-quality research of regional and national significant that holds special value for the global audience as well as replicable in other parts of the world. Thus, the calibration of EPL’s remit will be primarily guided by these mantras.” View in full here.

New issue: EPL Volume 51, Issue 3

This new issue sees content published in a number of key sections of the journal, under the headings:

  • Global Law and Policy 
  • Regional Law and Policy 
  • National Law and Policy 

In total, we have six research articles that cover the rights of nature, international water resources law, policies concerning dryland degradation and marine protected areas, and more. 

The two articles in the global developments section cover: the role of climate change relating to gender-based violence against women, with an analysis of existing international legal instruments and intergovernmental processes; and the rights of nature as a superior environmental outcome compared to traditional nature conservation techniques including creation of protected areas.

The two articles covering regional developments focus on international water resources law from an environment and sustainability perspective. The papers cover the regions of India and Pakistan, as well as the Kurdistan region.

The final section on national developments features content that looks at dryland degradation and expansion, in particular the implications for Mexican policy from the Earth system perspective, and an article focusing on legal framework issues in the establishment and control of Indonesian marine protected areas
