Thesis (LL.D.)--Universite Laval (Canada), 1998
War is the human activity with the greatest potential for damaging the environment. The technological evolution of the means of waging war now extends even to using the environment as a weapon. The potential for long-term, serious damage on a global scale now exists, and the threat is severe enough to warrant considerable attention to environmental protection during wartime
The purpose of this thesis is to examine the legal aspects concerning the effects of man's warlike activities on the environment. The study consists of two parts. The first part considers international treaties and customary rules, and will attempt to assess the present state of international law concerning the protection of the world's natural environment in time of armed conflict. After exploring some of the criticisms concerning the effectiveness of the existing rules, the thesis considers potential consequences arising from violations of these provisions and proposes how they can be modified to provide more effective protection of the environment in time of hostilities
The second part focuses on state responsibility for environmental protection and preservation. This part includes a case-by-case analysis of selected opinions of the ICJ and international tribunals related to the issue of State responsibility for environmental protection. We will attempt to show that States are responsible for their acts causing environmental damage to other States
The conclusion will attempt to suggest ways in which the relevant law might be improved
