With unique scholarly analysis and practical discussion, this book provides a comprehensive introduction to the relationship between environmental protection and human rights being formalized into law in many legal systems. This book instructs on environmental techniques and procedures that assist in the protection of human rights. The text provides cogent guidance on a growing international jurisprudence on the promotion and protection of human rights in relation to the environment that has been developed by international and regional human rights bodies and tribunals. It explores a rich body of case law that continues to develop within states on the environmental dimension of the rights to life, to health, and to public participation and access to information. Five compelling contemporary case studies are included that implicate human rights and the environment, ranging from large dam projects to the creation of a new human right to a clean environment.

Recent years have seen a growing awareness of the environment as something to be protected, rather than taken for granted. But is there a "human right to the environment"? The European Convention on Human Rights and additional protocols do not cover any environmental rights or any interest in the preservation of the environment. Nevertheless, as the European Court has said, the Convention is a "living instrument", which has shown itself capable of adapting with the times; and today, some analysts see in the Court's case law a tendency to interpret certain provisions of the Convention as affording at least a degree of environmental protection. In this study, Daniel Garcâa San Josâ surveys the relevant case law, and examines the dualistic approach of judicial activism and self-restraint which has guided the decisions in this area. He concludes that there is no creation of a new right, but an evolving perception of the environmental dimension of some Convention provisions.

This book explores the means by which economic liberalisation can be reconciled with human rights and environmental protection in the regulation of international trade. It is primarily concerned with identifying the lessons the international community can learn, specifically in the context of the WTO, from decades of European Community and Union experience in facing this question. The book demonstrates first that it is possible to reconcile the pursuit of economic and non-economic interests, that the EU has found a mechanism by which to do so, and that the application of the principle of proportionality is fundamental to the realisation of this. It is argued that the EU approach can be characterised as a practical application of the principle of sustainable development. Secondly, from the analysis of the EU experience, this book identifies fundamental conditions crucial to achieving this 'reconciliation'. Thirdly, the book explores the implications of lessons from the EU experience for the international community. In so doing it assesses both the potential and limits of the existing international regulatory framework for such reconciliation. The book develops a deeper understanding of the inter-relationship between the legal regulation of economic and non-economic development, adding clarity to the debate in a controversial area. It argues that a more holistic approach to the consideration of 'development', encompassing economic and non-economic concerns - 'sustainable' development - is not only desirable in principle but realisable in practice.

Increasingly, environmental rights are being recognized as enforceable human rights, both substantive and procedural. Environmental law can no longer be viewed merely as a matter for policy choices in legislation. This new casebook shows how international and national court cases in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas have begun to interpret treaties, national constitutions, and human rights legislation to protect the environment through the recognition of rights. For the first time, these rich developments are brought together in a book suitable as a primary text for classes and seminars.

After the completion of the Uruguay Round and the adoption of the 1994 agreement establishing the WTO, the place of international trade in the context of the international legal order has radically changed. International trade law has become a subject of wide-spread interest, cutting across traditional boundaries, and engaging diverse political and legal concerns. One consequence of this development is increasing concern with the legitimacy of the WTO process, which in turn has led to the WTO becoming the focus of rancorous protest by, among others, environmental NGOs, trade unions, and human rights activists. This collection of essays by leading scholars and lawyers engaged in the policy-making process addresses the underlying tensions and dilemmas of the WTO process and its impact upon the environment and human rights in particular. The contributors search for a balance between, on the one hand, legitimate free trade interests and, on the other, the role and limits of unilateral measures as an instrument to protect non-commercial values. The essays thus range over a host of topical questions, including: trade in GMOs, biosafety in intellectual property rights, technology transfer and environmental protection, trade and labor rights, child labor standards, the EU and WTO, and many other topics.
