Question 1: How useful are the frameworks for international environmental law? What have the main constraints to their effectiveness been?

Most parts of the United Nation Convention have been applied consistently by many states. Several provisions have been implemented in the legislation by different States, and international conferences have adopted new conventions for decision making and guideline provision. The implications of the international environmental law framework include the present status of prospects and the meeting, adoption of an agreement on the implementation of part of the convention and legal implications in the entry forcing a provisional application of that agreement and convention.

Question 2: How should European states deal with the large numbers of asylum seekers and immigrants arriving by boat to Italy and Greece every week?

According to McAdam (2008) International human rights law has grown into a complicated system of duties and rights between the State and an individual which affects the traditional notions of a State and its behavior e.g. towards immigrants. Complementary protection is a feature that describes the protection given by refugees. European states adopted subsidiary protection, and the beneficiaries are those facing death penalties or a death risk.

Question 3: How do you think international organizations and countries should respond to challenges posted by private military and security companies in the future?

Responsibility and accountability assist in having a clear understanding of the responsibility of workers in private military organizations. Options for regulation enable organizations to develop their code of conduct and illustrate the willingness to self-regulate. Establishment of a working group creates a system of human rights and standards that private and security companies should respect. States are advised to regulate registered businesses, and these businesses should undergo strict licensing procedures. International organizations and states should also employees and their companies are trained and in some cases, the state offers such training. The companies should also be ready to disclose employees who participate in hostilities, and particular requirements help to avoid issues associated with the industry.
