Sustainable and Efficient Transport

Incentives for Promoting a Green Transport Market

Edited by Ellen Eftestøl-Wilhelmsson, Suvi Sankari and Anu Bask

The EU Commission has set the goal of facilitating a competitive transport system, increasing mobility and supporting growth while simultaneously reaching a target of 60 per cent emissions reductions by 2050. In light of past performance and estimated development, the target will not be reached without further behavioural change in the transport sector. This interdisciplinary book examines how such a behavioural shift can be achieved by various organizational and legal means, focusing primarily on the European Union and its specific policies related to greening transport.

Uniformity of Transport Law through International Regimes addresses the problem of uniformity of transport law and the potential solutions at international and EU levels. It concerns transport conventions and other instruments dealing mainly with carriage of goods by sea and multimodal transport as well as examining the Rotterdam Rules as one of the solutions towards uniformity in carriage of goods law. The discussion on international uniformity in transport law is complemented by an examination of regional harmonization in the context of EU law-making and jurisprudence in the field of international transport. The comparison between international and regional regimes reveals the complexities in application and interpretation of the certain transport conventions which is detrimental to achieving uniformity.

The scholarly contributions discussed in this timely research review address the special realm of legal rules applicable to space activities and their terrestrial applications. Outer space is generally considered a “global commons”, so this review focuses on the international regime which is also the foundation of an increasing number of national space laws. Topics covered concern the development, character and structure of international space law, its relationship with national space law, and military and commercial aspects of space activities, including launching and satellite applications. This fascinating study provides a comprehensive overview of the most important matters relating to international space law and will be a valuable research tool for academics and practitioners alike.

Commercial Uses of Space and Space Tourism combines the perspectives of academics, policy makers and major industry players around three central themes connected to commercial spacefaring: the international legal challenges posed by the dramatic changes to the spacefaring landscape through privatisation and commercialisation; the corresponding legal and regulatory responses to these challenges at the national level; and related topical questions of global space governance.
