Abstract
International law concerning environmental issues advanced quite rapidly at the end of the 20th century. One of the developments was the introduction of legal frameworks to regulate the international waste trade. This paper investigates the Basel Convention and the norms created by OECD relating to transboundary shipments of waste and compares them to the current regulation in the EU and U.S.A. The investigation ends in a discussion about current deficiencies and future possibilities.
Abstract (Swedish)
Miljörätt är ett område där den internationella rätten utvecklades starkt under slutet på 1900-talet. Bland annat kom den gränsöverskridande handeln med avfall att regleras i internationella ramverk.
Uppsatsen undersöker Baselkonventionen och de regler OECD skapade på området och jämför dem med EU och USAs nuvarande lagstiftning gällande den internationella avfallshandeln. Avslutningsvis diskuteras områdets brister och framtid.
