Editors’ Preface As explained in the Series Editors’ Preface, this series is a result of workshops bringing together public and international lawyers. From the second volume onwards, the topics revolve around the International Association of Research Universities (IARU) thematic research topics. When Kim Rubenstein began thinking about organising the third workshop around the theme of the environment, she was encouraged to contact her ANU colleague Brad Jessup in the Australian Centre for Environmental Law. Brad responded enthusiastically and work began to brainstorm the call for papers. This third workshop, ‘Environmental Discourses in Public and International Law’, was inspired by interesting interdisciplinary work on discourse theory which enabled us to bring together a rich array of public and international lawyers with geographers and scientists and political theorists. The workshop explored how dominant environmental thought and action had been placed within public and international law, providing excellent material for the themes the series is exploring.
