Human rights tribunals are regularly confronted with complaints regarding human rights violations caused by environmental degradation. This book deals with the effectiveness of incorporating environmental dimensions into existing human rights and analyses the feasibility of a separate enforceable human right relating to the environment. Including chapters on the relevant case law of several regional human rights systems, such as the European Convention on Human Rights, the American Convention on Human Rights and global human rights systems, such as the UN International Convention on Civil and Political Rights, it demonstrates that incorporating environmental aspects within existing human rights is problematic and recommends the insertion of a right to a viable environment in all human rights systems.
