Summary
"This collection of essays explores linkages between the environment and human rights, and responds to the growing debate among activists, lawyers, academics and policy-makers on the legal status of environmental rights in both international and domestic law, and on proposals for a human right to a satisfactory environment. The collection is an original and timely contribution to the existing literature and offers a sustained analysis which addresses both the conceptual and practical problems in environmental rights. The conceptual dimensions are particularly rich, raising fundamental questions concerning the human/environment relationship as well as more general issues regarding the form, content, and limitations of international and domestic human rights law. The first part of the book deals mainly with the protection of the environment in international human rights law and EC law, while the second part concentrates on problems and experience in developing countries, some of which have already incorporated environmental rights and international constitutional law and from which a growing jurisprudence has emerged. This is where at present human rights approaches seem to be of greatest value." "Each chapter is written by an author well qualified in the field. The volume will have wide appeal to anyone interested in environmental law and human rights." --Book Jacket
