This paper examines soft international law principles that regulate forest management. It proceeds from the 1972 Stockholm Conference on Human Environment as a major source of international environmental law and surveys major international customary law norms that have followed. The article ends with the Rio Declaration as the latest source of soft international environmental law. The discussion of the paper hinges on the strength and limitations of soft international law principles in regulating sustainable development of forests.
