About Environmental Rights in Europe and Beyond

The growing awareness of an impending environmental crisis coupled with a series of national and regional environmental disasters led, in the 1960s and 1970s, to the birth of the global environmental movement and the widespread recognition of the need to protect the environment for both current and future generations. Against this backdrop the concept of 'environmental rights' surfaced as a means by which claims relating to the environment could be formulated in legal terms and thereby safeguarded. In the decades that followed, this concept has come to encompass many different variations of legal rights, which this book seeks to investigate and assess.

“What better can one say of a book than that it opens the door to an intense discussion on the role of environmental law as a means to protect the environment? This book should not only be read, but be studied by young law students – but then again also by all those to whom this call for improvement of environmental protection through law is addressed: academics, NGOs, practising environmental lawyers and judges.” –  Ludwig Krämer, Common Market Law Review
