Abstract and Keywords

This chapter examines the development and historiography of environmental diplomacy, broadly defined, and it argues that there are opportunities for environmental and diplomatic historians to cross their disciplinary boundaries. It discusses three types of environmental diplomacy: bilateral treaties aimed at regulating access to fisheries; multilateral treaties that apply conservationist principles to fish and other wildlife; and accords that address pollution control. The chapter concludes by assessing the environmental ramifications of traditional diplomacy.
