By Henrik Selin

The demanding situations posed by means of handling unsafe chemical compounds move limitations, jurisdictions,
and constituencies. because the Nineteen Sixties, a chemical substances regime--a multitude of officially autonomous but
functionally comparable treaties and programs--has been in non-stop improvement, as states and
organizations collaborate at various governance degrees to mitigate the future health and environmental
problems as a result of harmful chemical compounds. during this ebook, Henrik Selin analyzes the development,
implementation, and way forward for the chemical compounds regime, a severe yet understudied quarter of global
governance, and proposes that the problems raised have major implications for effective
multilevel governance in lots of different parts. Selin focuses his research on 3 subject matters: coalition
building in aid of coverage switch; the diffusion of regime parts throughout coverage venues; and
the impression of institutional linkages at the layout and effectiveness of multilevel governance
efforts. He presents in-depth empirical reviews of the 4 multilateral treaties that shape the core
of the chemical compounds regime: the Basel conference (1989), which regulates the transboundary stream and
disposal of damaging wastes; the Rotterdam conference (1998), which governs the overseas trade
in chemical substances; the CLRTAP POPs Protocol (1998), designed to minimize the discharge and transnational
transport of emissions of continual natural pollution; and the Stockholm conference (2001), which
targets the creation, use, alternate, and disposal of power natural toxins. The interactions
of contributors and associations inside of and throughout various degrees of governance have implications
for coverage making and administration that aren't but totally understood. Selin's research of these
linkages within the chemical substances regime deals useful theoretical and policy-relevant insights into the
growing institutional density in worldwide governance.
