BeschreibungDuring the past thirty years attempts have been made to use human rights to achieve environmental objectives, or indeed to contest environmental measures. This volume brings together the relevant decisions from the United Nations, European and Inter-American human rights systems. It provides a summary or note of each case, and includes an invaluable digest of the cases arranged by the human right relied upon. This is an essential reference work for all those interested in human rights and environment.
