A New Modus Operandi for the International Institutions with Environmental Competence

  • Dionysia-Theodora Avgerinopoulou


A new modus operandi for the international institutions with competence on environmental issues should be devised. It should not only include lawmaking processes that enhance the science-base of the international environmental laws, but also reinforce the overall acts of an international institution, in order to balance the disadvantages and imbalances that a science-based lawmaking model may create. It should also place the science-based lawmaking model under a large-scale system perspective. A comprehensive new modus operandi should be instrumented based on sorting out the most successful organizational and regulatory decision-making models deriving by both the national and international administration in order to achieve the model optimization. The new procedures and institutional structures that the science-based lawmaking requires should incorporate elements of all the types of legitimacy in order that the model be optimal from every aspect and also be sustainable in the long run.
