Chapter 7: Trusteeship and the United Nations
More than ever before in human history, we share a common destiny. We can master it only if we face it together. And that is why we have the United Nations. Kofi Anan. At present, there is no international organisation that is granted the broad jurisdictional authority and governance powers required to compel countries to recognize their collective duty to combat climate change. Law, without credible institutional arrangements to implement and enforce it, remains nothing more than just an abstract idea. McGoldrick, Feaver and Maver.
