The involvement of non-state actors in global environment governance by exercising various degrees of political power started at the same time as the first United Nations Conference on Human Environment in Stockholm in 1972. This involvement has since become a distinguishing feature of international environmental law. The purpose of this article is to describe the contribution of a small professional scientific group of mainly European international environmental lawyer – Conseil Européen de Droit de l’Environnement (CEDE) – to the development of international environmental law. The article will be published in vol. 30 of Yearbook of International Environmental Law (2020).
