Abstract

Simon Marsden holds a Chair in Energy Law at the University of Stirling and is a well-established author in the area of environmental protection in Asia. In his previous book with the same publisher, Environmental Regimes in Asian Subregions China and the Third Pole (2017), he provided a critical account of subregional environmental governance in the region. In his latest work, Marsden suggests legal transplants as a solution for improving the effectiveness of international governance of the “Third Pole”. It builds on the well-established field of literature on legal transplants, but while many environmental law scholars are sceptical about their effectiveness, Marsden takes an optimistic approach and suggests improving environmental protection of the “Third Pole” by transplanting international law from European and polar contexts
