SPECIAL ISSUE 2019.2

IMPLEMENTATION OF INTERNATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL LAW AND POLICY SINCE THE EARTH SUMMIT

The Brazilian Journal of International Law (RDI) invites submissions for a special issue on Implementation of International Environmental Law and Policy to be published in 2019. The issue will be edited by Professors Paul Martin (University of New England, Australia), Catherine Tinker (Seton Hall University, USA) and Marcia Leuzinger (UNICEUB, Brasilia).
"Implementation of International Environmental Law and Policy” will be published as the second issue of the Brazilian Journal of International Law in 2019. Articles for the theme will be selected through a double-blind peer review system.

Environmental studies integrate knowledge from fields as varied as law, social sciences, psychology, economics, ecology, biology, hydrology, geology, engineering, and genetics, as the basis for international, regional, national and subnational law and policy for the sustainable use of natural resources.

Studies of international environmental law and policy examine, inter alia:
• threats to the environment caused by human behavior,
• governance of the human interactions with nature,
• initiatives to reverse or prevent the environmental damage,
• international, regional and national environmental institutions ,
• legal responses to scientific knowledge including of changes in natural systems, species, habitats and environmental services, and
• mechanisms and effects of the implementation of various environmental governance arrangements.

Despite the demands of civil society for sustainability and prevention of environmental harm, innovations in the private sector in methods and technologies, enforcement of environmental law by judges and other competent actors, and public policies including the vast body of international environmental law created since the Rio Earth Summit in 1992 (United Nations Conference on Environment and Development) many natural environments are in serious decline. This raises questions about the effectiveness of all aspects of the environmental law system.
Many institutional mechanisms now exist, including multilateral treaties with secretariats and scientific and technical bodies. International courts and tribunals have begun to interpret and apply international environmental law principles. Implementation of legal regimes on sectoral issues can be analyzed using a complementary approach to traditional normative models. Finding a global consensus on the norms and principles of international environmental law, and the procedures for implementation of this law, is fundamental to strong public policies on the environment based. The flexibility to respond to scientific evidence and technology, best practices and innovations may be important to implementation of international environmental law. Financing (whether North-South, South-South, private sector, global fund, or otherwise) will be indispensable for developing countries, along with capacity-building and transfer of technology to achieve sustainable development and apply the statistical indicators designed to help meet the goals and targets of the SDGs.

The editors of this edition invite submissions on of themes that address international environmental law and the conservation and sustainable use of natural resources and systems with a particular emphasis on implementation and effectiveness.

The following are among the possible topics within the theme:
1) The status of implementation of multilateral environmental agreements, and requirements for successful implementation, across countries or within countries.
2) The extent to which Agenda 21 and the Rio treaties shape international environmental law and inform policies on the international, regional, national and subnational levels.
3) Making science more effective within MEAs and policy on international, regional, national and subnational levels.
4) Understanding the different implementation challenges and difficulties of developed, developing, least developed and other categories of states.
5) Finding effective modalities to implement principles of international environmental law in the normative sense, creating binding international law or through voluntary actions and broader policy agendas.
6) Means of implementation that have proven effective, whether in sectoral approaches or in integrated frameworks.
7) Evidence-based assessment of what institutional arrangements and bodies have been most effective in the implementation of international environmental law
8) Improving the inclusiveness of international environmental law considering rules, actors, processes, norms, and narratives.
9) Critical analysis of decision-making in international environmental law: actors; scientific and technological experts; consideration of economic, social and environmental components; consensus and voluntary action; participation by all stakeholders including states, civil society and the private sector.
10) Proposals for more effective public policies based on interdisciplinary research, innovative governance design, citizen science and participatory processes, and the precautionary principle or approach.
11) Meta-governance mechanisms to better ensure the integrity of implementation of international commitments, and transparency about implementation and effectiveness.

CALL FOR PAPERS - SPECIAL ISSUE 2020 - 1

 
The Brazilian Journal of International Law invites submissions for a special issue on Regional Integration: the role of regulation and governance to be published in February of 2020. The issue will be edited by Professors Jamile Bergamaschine Mata Diz (Federal University of Minas Gerais), Nuno Cunha Rodrigues (University of Lisbon) and Carlos Francisco Molina del Pozo (University of Alcalá, Spain)

Submissions on all aspects of Regional Integration: the role of regulation and governance are welcome. The following non-exhaustive topics can be considered for submissions:

1) Influence of governance on the development of power making-decision of the regional actors

The discussion on governance has become increasingly determinant in understanding how the activities of States and regional institutions, especially in regards to the regulations they establish, must consider the means of expression and the role of regional actors in global governance. Therefore, it is essential to analyze the decision-making process from a tendency intrinsically linked to the concepts of governance and regulation in multidimensional spaces created precisely by new institutional arrangements based on inter-state relations. A possible starting point for the investigation of these phenomena lies in the studies of the effectiveness, efficiency and efficacy of the decisions made by such arrangements and their implications in the good public management of the States participating in regional integration processes, in the cases, for example, of the European Union, Mercosur and other regional integration process.

2) The regulation of social participation in society at the policies and rule of institutional regional
Based on the report of the Commission on Global Governance (UN, 1996) and the respective developments incorporated therefrom (e.g. Department of Economic and Social Affairs - Responsible and Accountable Public Governance - World Public Sector Report, 2015, ST/ESA /PAD/SER.E/187) that were eventually incorporated into the State's regulatory activity, individually and / or coordinated under the influence of integration, the aim is to analyse the dimensions that are linked to the term governance, starting from a micro viewpoint between private actors and states, with a clear regulatory disposition in order to create a conducive environment for commercial and productive activities, reaching a macro viewpoint that includes both the participation of civil society in the activities of states and institutions and the control and supervision of the private agents. Governance should be guided as a means and process to achieve effective participation in decision-making, while promoting greater rapprochement between citizens and institutions, promoting more transparent ways of controlling and supervising their activities.

3) Regional governance models and connection to global governance

The Report of the UN Global Commission and other subsequent documents gave rise to the formation and adoption of governance parameters that were later reworked or modified by the States within the framework of the regional integration processes. The White Paper on Governance (2001) adopted by the European Union is a clear example of how a culture was created to promote greater openness, transparency, accountability and coherence of regulatory activities, now geared to the regional environment and not just at national level. The connection between global and regional governance encourages the incorporation of the principles, instruments and elements intended to achieve a participatory and dialogic regulation, linked to social control. The analysis of regional documents and normative acts exposes a peculiar aspect of governance based on the multiplicity of elements. The study of these forms of governance shows the extent to which there is a strong tendency to establish a public-private regulation that is also present in the regional integration processes.

CALL FOR PAPERS - SPECIAL ISSUE 2019 - 3

 
SPECIAL ISSUE 2019.3



Comparative Law and its protagonists:

what use, for what purpose, with which methods?



The Brazilian Journal of International Law invites submissions for a special issue on “Comparative Law and its Protagonists” to be published in December 2019. The issue will be edited by Dr. Gustavo Cerqueira (Maître de conférences at the University of Reims and President of the Latin America’s section of the Société de législation comparée, France) and Dr. Patrícia Perrone Campos Mello (Constitutional Law Professor at Centro Universitário de Brasília - UniCEUB, Brazil). The deadline for submission is the 30th of September 2019.

Submissions on all issues related to the subject are welcome. More precisely, proposals should address the purpose and the way in which legislators (on hard or soft law), judges (judicial, administrative or arbitral), lawyers, mediators and scholars – our legal protagonists – use legal comparison in the accomplishment of their missions. Proposals could also analyse if those missions and goals interfere with methodological choices. The following non-exhaustive topics can be considered by interested authors and researchers.



I. What to compare



I.1. Defining the object of comparison and its scope. How should the comparator define the object of comparison and its scope? For instance, should the approach be restricted to legal institutions, statutes and precedents, or should it include political, sociological and/or anthropological models? The criteria employed to make this choice must be justified. Such justification is also expected if the research is restricted to a certain period of time.

I.2. Legal pluralism and comparison. Legal pluralism is characterized by a diversity of conceptions of the law and by different concrete manifestations on its content. Not rarely, the study of a legal institution cannot be successful without considering the scholars’ opinions and the case law on the matter. In some cases, the legal pluralism of our days shall also interfere with the understanding of legal institutes, as evidenced by the “European Law”. What are the difficulties that the protagonists face when their object of comparison is plural and/or affected by legal pluralism?




II. Purpose to compare



II.1. Rhetorical use. Law and comparison share a close relation with rhetoric. What are the rhetorical functions of comparing different systems? Heuristic, pedagogical, hermeneutic, persuasive? Should (or does) the mission of the protagonist play a particular role in the choice of one or more of these functions? Finally, can one conceive legal comparison today without a critical purpose of contemporary law?

II.2. Law development. What are the purposes of comparing? Can comparative law provide a better understanding of the national law? Could it inspire its development? Should it be used by lawmakers, judges, lawyers and/or scholars with this purpose? In which circumstances? Which are the limits for legal transplants and for the migration of ideas among different systems? What are the problems and cautions to be observed ? How can comparative law be harmonized with the requirements of the democratic legitimacy of national law?



III. Methods of comparison



III.1. The debate on the methods. Comparative studies use a variety of methods, such as functional, analytical, structural, contextual, historical, common core, social-legal comparative law, comparative law and economics methods. Each of them emphasizes the comparison of distinct aspects or intends to answer different questions. Which are the positive and negative aspects of their use? Is it possible to argue for a more appropriate method of legal comparison? Does the answer to this question depend on the protagonist's mission and/or on the reasons to compare?

III.2. Ideological struggles related to methods. Law (and, therefore, comparative law) can be used as an instrument of ideology. The possibility of “judicialization of ideologies” should lead the critics of comparative law to question the criteria used to choose the object and systems to be compared, and to evaluate when these choices are motivated by ideological purposes and in which magnitude. Does comparative law serve as a mean of migration of ideologies and/or as an ideological support for legal choices? Besides, would the mission of the protagonist play a particular role in this phenomena? What is the contribution that comparative methods can offer to avoid or to evidence the ideological use of comparative law?
