Abstract

The relationship between the climate change and human rights regimes has been the subject of much scholarly debate. The Paris Agreement and work carried out under the auspices of the Human Right Council have shed new light on states’ understanding of the interplay between these two bodies of law. This chapter analyses these recent developments, placing them in the context of the scholarly debate on the fragmentation of international law, analysing means to avoid conflicts and exploit synergies between the climate change and the human rights regimes.

Keywords: climate change; human rights; international law; fragmentation
