Greenpeace and the dumping of wastes at sea

Publication - 6 June, 1999
It is fair to say that existing restrictions and bans on the dumping and incineration of wastes at sea would not have been enacted unless Greenpeace had undertaken and maintained a campaign to this aim in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. Greenpeace´s campaign to protect the ocean from waste dumping has been one of the most persistent and popular campaigns of the environmental organisation in its entire history. It represents an excellent case study of the role that non-state actors can play in international relations.
