Human rights, greening of the rights to life, private life and property, anthropocentric, environmental rights, eco-centric
Should we continue to think about human rights and the environment within the existing framework of human rights law in which the protection of humans is the central focus – essentially a greening of the rights to life, private life and property – or has the time come to talk directly about environmental rights – in other words to have the environment itself protected? Should we transcend the anthropocentric in favour of the ecocentric?
