At its 65th session in August 2013, the United Nations International Law Commission included the topic 'protection of the atmosphere' in its programme of work, and has since begun to draft a set of legal guidelines, on the basis of four reports prepared by its Special Rapporteur on the subject, albeit under a severely restricted mandate. This article comments on the work so initiated, in light of the deliberations in the Commission and the draft guidelines provisionally adopted.
