ANU College of Law Research Paper No. 11-17
This "case study" was intended to be included in Anton & Shelton, Environmental Problems and Human Rights (Cambridge, 2011), but space limitations forced its omission from the printed text. The assertion of a human right to a healthy environment has persisted over the last 40 years. Here we examine the international guarantees and national guarantees that have developed. We also look at moves toward a Declaration on Human Rights and the Environment.
