Progressive Lawmaking Procedures in the Framework of International Institutions with Environmental Competence

  • Dionysia-Theodora Avgerinopoulou


In the present part, I sort out current models of lawmaking procedures and, try to draw conclusions about these conclusions, in order to design a better model for the integration of science in the international environmental lawmaking procedures (optimization of the system). This is necessary since the various developments of the regimes respond differently to chances in scientific knowledge without need to begin afresh with a new treaty. In order a researcher to be able to fully present the overall lawmaking system of IEL, it would be more appropriate to use the large-scale systems theory that understands lawmaking as a function that takes place under a complex and interdependent social order, with many actors directly or indirectly participating in the process. This approach is not, however, possible to follow, since the time available to complete the book necessarily limits the scope of the research. As a result, the analysis is much more limited in extent than what a large-scale system analysis would normally require.
