About this book

The contributors present a range of case studies, from Latin America, Asia and Africa, of conflicts over resource use, territorial rights, infrastructure and industrial projects, and analyse the links with the range of rights affected - including civil and political rights, and labour and welfare rights. Other contributors examine the ways in which robust norms that integrate environmental performance and protection of rights can be established.

'A timely text... A well constructed and composed contribution to the negative forces present in the environmental / ethical debate.' Progress in Development Studies 'This is a well constructed and composed contribution to the negative forces present in the environmental/ethical debate...provides a useful contribution to the debate about environment...this is a useful volume, and I would welcome it on my bookshelf.' Alexander Lynch , Progress in Development Studies.
