The global politics of the environment is characterised by plenty of legality - defined as public international law - but much dispute over the legitimacy of that legal order, its institutions, the value-systems that it represents, and its outcomes. This chapter addresses these two connected themes of legality and legitimacy in the context of what is often referred to as a crisis in global environmental governance.
