About this book

Explores the uncharted territory that lies between environmental and human rights legislation. Argues that human rights activism presents a significant opportunity to address the human consequences of environmental degradation and can serve as a catalyst for inspiring ideas and action in the real world. Includes: reviews of existing international laws and treaties that establish the rights to a healthy environment; an overview of mechanisms that allow both individuals and groups to seek remedy for abuses; and specific cases that document efforts to seek redress for victims of environmental degradation through existing human rights protection mechanisms.
