General Principles of Environmental Law and Regulation

Part of the SpringerBriefs in Law book series (BRIEFSLAW)


As a specialized agency of the United Nations, ICAO draws its legitimacy from the United Nations and any treaty or other agreement or arrangement that ICAO develops containing a global market based measure would have to accord with the meaning and purpose of the United Nations. It is for this reason that the previous chapter on the development of international law and the United Nations becomes essential background material for this study.
