Environmental Rights offers new perspectives on contemporary debates over rights and environmental issues. It draws on key theories of contemporary philosophers and jurists and case reports from decisions in English, European and US courts. It also examines recent developments within environmental law and policy in the UK and the EU. Specific rights of the individual are examined - the right to clean air and water, access to information, the right to participate in environmental decisions - as well as the practical obstacles to the exercising of these rights.
Revised and updated throughout, this unique anthology examines global environmental politics from a range of perspectives—contemporary and classic, activist and scholarly—and reflects voices of the powerless and powerful. Paradigms of sustainability, environmental security, and ecological justice illustrate the many ways environmental problems and their solutions are framed in contemporary international debates about climate, water, forests, toxics, energy, food, biodiversity, and other environmental challenges of the twenty-first century. Organized thematically, the selections offer a truly global scope. Seventeen new readings discuss climate justice, environmental peacebuilding, globalization, land grabs, corporate environmentalism, climate adaptation, gender, disaster risk, resilience, and the future of global environmental politics in the wake of the “Rio+20” global summit of 2012.This book stresses the underlying questions of power, interests, authority, and legitimacy that shape environmental debates, and it provides readers with a global range of perspectives on the critical challenges facing the planet and its people.

This set brings together a cross section of material from both philosophy and business journals. It includes: what is business ethics and how has it developed; are ethics compatible with the free market?; international business ethics; and case studies.
