From Precaution to Profit

This chapter examines the role of NGOs in the Montreal Protocol, specifically with the MeBr phaseout. It discusses how U.S.-based international NGOs operating in global environmental governance (IENGOs), such as the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA), have made use of neoliberal discourse to make effective interventions. It argues that NGOs' adoption of neoliberal rhetoric indicates that they are learning to manage themselves in a neoliberal way that helps reinforce the regulatory structure in place rather than helping nations take a more environment-friendly stance.

Keywords:   Montreal Protocol, NGOs, environmental policy, environmental regulation, MeBr phaseout, neoliberal policies
