Abstract

The international protection of fundamental human rights and the protection of the environment are two of the most rapidly developing spheres of law in the late twentieth century. Although they may be understood as having common aims (if one accepts that environmental law has an anthropocentric teleology) their functional interrelationship has tended to be obscured by a process of technocratic specialization that has been fomented, in particular, by the creation of a dedicated institutional forum for debate and dispute resolution.
