Sustainable Development, International Aviation, and Treaty Implementation
October 2018 – This new collection of essays compiled by McGill University’s Institute of Air and Space Law (IASL), and published by Cambridge University Press, is co-edited by Professor Armand de Mestral, former IASL Director, Emeritus Professor of Law at McGill; Dr Paul Fitzgerald, IASL doctoral graduate, Adjunct Professor at the IASL; and Dr Tanveer Ahmad, IASL doctoral graduate, former Executive Director of the McGill Centre for Research in Air and Space Law, and currently Manager, Aeropolitical Affairs with Qatar Airways. The book argues the CORSIA scheme adopted by ICAO in 2016 should be implemented in 2020 even though the adequacy of the scheme is still open to doubt and criticism. It seeks to examine the many dimensions of the effort to contain greenhouse gas emissions from aircraft in a manner consonant with the principles of sustainable development, and examines the development of international law and policy in an area that has remained largely outside the general framework of international environmental law.
