REFLECTIONS ON THE DEBATE BETWEEN TRADE AND ENVIRONMENT” (published by Xlibris UK) has been the product of the in-depth research which Dr. Yvonne Nana Afua Idun conducted into various issues within the realm of the trade and environment debate and the practical solutions which she offers to resolve this conflict.

Primarily presented to all law students, researchers, and academics, this helpful text provides references and material on the topic while explaining in simple terms how to reconcile the two seemingly opposing views of trade and environment and how to harmonise these views in one coherent policy. While discussing the trade and environment debate, the book further delves into relevant case studies and legislation from WTO and EU jurisprudential perspectives. It also pays attention to the importance of this debate regarding African countries in their implementation of trade and environmental policies and how these relate to pertinent environmental issues such as climate change, pollution and waste trade.

By reviewing the concepts of trade and environment, which are two fundamentally important principles that are embedded in the concept of sustainable development, Idun opens all of the readers’ eyes to the importance of putting a common ground for two opposing views to make them work for the common good — the advancement towards society’s sustainability.
