Die Vermeidung von Umweltschäden gilt gemeinhin als Völkergewohnheitsrecht. Der Band schlägt einen anderen Umgang vor, indem es die Vermeidung von Umweltschäden als allgemeinen Grundsatz des Völkerrechts zu definieren sucht. Vor diesem Hintergrund wird das Prinzip der Prävention im allgemeinen Völkerrecht neu formuliert.


Prevention of environmental harm is commonly regarded as an obligation established by a customary rule of international law. However, many questions are still unanswered, including the exact content of such an obligation. This book attempts to address those questions by proposing a different reconstruction: it is argued that prevention of environmental harm amounts to a general principle of international law, rather than a customary rule. To this end, the book discusses the weaknesses of the classication of prevention as a customary obligation.
