Transboundary Damage in International Law

By Xue Hanqin | Go to book overview

Transboundary Damage in International Law

The Chernobyl disaster, the Amoco Cadiz oil spill and the Colorado River dispute are examples of an activity conducted by one State which has serious adverse effects in the territory of another, or in global common areas. This book details the international rules and compensation procedures, and is intended for use by governmental officials, international lawyers and jurists. It discusses existing laws on international liability and considers the underlying legal issues that require further development. It is one of the few books on the subject written from the perspective of a developing country with rapid economic and social development.

XUE HANQIN is Director-General of the Law and Treaty Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China. She is one of the first women members of the International Law Commission. She has broad experience in both bilateral and multilateral negotiations of international treaties on various subjects of public international law. She is also a professor of law at the Beijing University School of Law and the College of Foreign Diplomacy of China, and Vice-President of the Chinese Society of International Law. She has written extensively on different issues of contemporary international law.
