Washington International Law Journal


Kraig M. Hill


As our first thematic issue, this book represents a milestone in the evolution of the Pacific Rim Law & Policy Journal. As the Journal strives to address legal issues from comparative and interdisciplinary perspectives, each special issue will focus on a specific subject area of emerging relevance to the greater Pacific Rim community. Current plans include at least one special issue each year, in addition to the regularly published issues. Among the subjects being considered for future special issues: intellectual property law, anti-monopoly law, international commercial law, trade and environment, and development and human rights. This special issue was occasioned by the ROC/US Environmental Law and Management Conference, a symposium on environmental protection held at National Sun Yat-sen University, Kaohsiung, Taiwan, Republic of China, on March 23-24, 1993. The articles were developed from presentations made by the authors at the symposium, except for the essay by Professor Cai Shouqui and Mark Voigts on environmental protection in mainland China, which was included to broaden the perspective of the selected articles. A general introduction is provided by Professor William H. Rodgers, Jr. of the University of Washington School of Law.
