This extremely well written book is an essential guide to environmental rights in theory and in practice. (Professor Tim Hayward, University of Edinburgh, author of Constitutional Environmental Rights) This book is indispensable for anyone interested in environmental rights. Boyd’s astounding in-depth research spans more than countries /5(2).

    It examines various conceptualisations of environmental human rights, including procedural rights relating to the environment, constitutional environmental rights, the environmental dimensions of existing human rights such as the rights to water, health, food, housing and life, and the notion of a stand-alone human right to a healthy environment. So while rallies, protests, and certainly voting are important ways to do that, I think that the passage of constitutional provisions to protect our environmental rights is a high priority way to hold government accountable for protecting people’s right to a health environment.

    Global Environmental Constitutionalism examines the increasing recognition that the environment is a proper subject for protection in constitutional texts and for vindication by constitutional courts. This phenomenon, which the authors call environmental constitutionalism, represents the confluence of constitutional law, international law. PRAISE FOR THE ENVIRONMENTAL RIGHTS REVOLUTION “This book is indispensable for anyone interested in environmental rights. Boyd’s astounding in-depth research spans more than countries, and shows what a powerful tool constitutional rights can be for advancing sustainability – in courtrooms, legislatures, and broader society.”File Size: 3MB.
