Global Environmental Negotiations 1: green politics

Green Politics , the first in a series of publications on global environmental negotiations (GEN) provides a close analysis of important environment-related conventions and institutions from their origins, and demystifies the global politics behind 'saving the environment'. The book presents a first-ever comprehensive Southern perspective of the impact of global environmental governance on the real lives of real people. Rather than promoting democracy and equality and building a just framework for future governance, environmental negotiations have turned into business transactions, where the rich and powerful often trample on the poor and weak.
