Spring 2020 • Law 693 • Credits: 3
Instructor: John Bonine
Environmental rights are increasingly being recognized as a new category of human rights, as well as an application of existing rights. We will study their relationships through recent developments in international law and in national law in various countries in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas. These evolving rights are both substantive and procedural. Students will examine international instruments, national constitutions, and legislation. We will also discuss novel international and national court cases interpreting and applying these rights.
