About the Book:

Are environmental human rights any match for the Anthropocene? With no time to waste, this trim compilation (221 pages) provides fresh critical analyses of the complexities of converging human rights with environmental protection. Based on expert analysis from the global South and North and around the globe, it details what is known; asks critical unanswered questions; and recommends action. It is ideal for teachers, researchers, policymakers, practitioners, and advanced students working in environmental law, human rights, public policy, political science, and environmental studies. It follows the Lund Roundtable on Human Rights and the Anthropocene sponsored by the Raoul Wallenberg Institute for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law at Lund University, Sweden.

Bringing together international experts in the field, it documents the current state of our environmental human rights knowledge, strategically critical questions that remain unanswered, and the initiatives required to develop those answers. It is ideal for researchers in environmental governance and law, as well as interested practitioners and advanced students working in public policy, political science and environmental studies.
