Bringing together leading international scholars in the field, this authoritative Handbook combines critical and doctrinal scholarship to illuminate some of the challenging tensions in the legal relationships between humans and the environment, and human rights and environment law.

The accomplished contributors provide researchers and students with a rich source of reflection and engagement with the topic. Split into five parts, the book covers epistemologies, core values and closures, constitutionalisms and regionalisms, with a final concluding section highlighting points for further consideration.

An essential resource for students and scholars of human rights law, the volume will also be of significant interest to those in the field of environmental and constitutional law.
