The field of human rights and the environment has grown phenomenally during the last few years and this textbook will be one of the first to encourage students to think critically about how many environmental issues lead to a violation of existing rights.

Taking a socio-legal approach, this book provides a good understanding of both human rights and environmental issues, as well as the limitations of each regime, and will explore the ways in which human rights law and institutions can be used to obtain relief for the victims of environmental degradation or of adverse effects of environmental policies. In addition, it will use climate change as a case study to highlight the pros and cons of using a human rights framework and to underscore its importance in the context of climate change. As well as identifying emerging issues and areas for further research, each chapter will be rich in pedagogical features, including, web links to further research and discussion questions for beyond the classroom.

Combining their specialisms in law and politics, Atapattu and Schapper have a developed a truly inter-disciplinary resource that will be essential for students of human rights, environmental studies, international law, international relations, politics and philosophy.
