Human Rights and the Environment
| Price: $ 29.95
The interface between human rights and the environment connects issues of social justice, environmental quality and ecosystem integrity. It is fraught with conflicts that have been made more acute and far-reaching by rapid economic globalization.
Those same processes of globalization have highlighted the need for ethical standards and norms wherever conflicts arise, particularly in developing countries which often have weak institutions and systems of redress. Through careful and sensitive exploration of case studies spanning the entire developing world, Human Rights and the Environment shows how these new standards might be approached and the conditions they must meet to address fundamental issues of land rights, mineral and oil extraction, environmental ethics and development strategies.
By showing what legal and institutional innovation is needed to mediate disputes and to enforce new ethics in the global economy that promote both human rights and environmental sustainability, this book makes a significant contribution to the development process as a whole.
