Human Rights or Environmental Rights? A Reassessment (A. Boyle)

Author

Alan Boyle ( University of Edinburgh )

Keywords

Human rights, greening of the rights to life, private life and property, anthropocentric, environmental rights, eco-centric

Abstract

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?
