Product description

Volume 3 of the IELR focuses on human rights and environment. Against a background of emerging rights to environment in national and international instruments, traditional human rights are being used to achieve environmental objectives. Globally, rights such as the right to private life, the right to life, the rights of minorities, the right to peaceful enjoyment of possessions and the right to a fair hearing are increasingly being invoked and interpreted in an environmental context. This volume brings together relevant decisions of the UN Human Rights Committee, the European Court, and former Commission, of Human Rights and the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights. It provides a summary or note of each case, the full legal text in the most important cases, and includes an invaluable digest of cases arranged by the human right relied upon. This is an essential reference work for those interested in human rights and environment.
