The Future of environmental cases in the European Court of Human Rights – new publication

Monica Feria-Tinta has written a chapter entitled “The Future of environmental cases in the European Court of Human Rights” which has just been published in Human Rights and the Planet (Elgar Publishing, 2022), edited by Natalia Kobylarz, Senior Lawyer, Registry of the European Court of Human Rights, and Evadne Grant, Associate Lecturer, University of the West of England.

This timely publication – also a Special Issue of the Journal of Human Rights and the Environment – brings into sharp relief the specific challenges faced by the European Court on Human Rights in addressing the human rights impacts of the interlocking environmental and climate crises.

The publication has been well-received, with commentary pointing out:

This visionary Special Issue articulates the path forward for a rights-based approach to tackling the global environmental crisis. As the clock approaches midnight, this superb volume identifies the transformative changes urgently needed to achieve just and sustainable societies. Essential reading for anyone concerned about human rights and the future of life on Earth.’

-David Boyd, UN Special Rapporteur on human rights and the environment

Monica has also contributed to the drafting of the “Strasbourg Principles of International Environmental Human Rights Law – 2022” which have been also published in the book. Ian Fry, Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights in the context of climate change commented:  ‘[This] is a very timely adjunct to the UN General Assembly’s recent resolution recognising the right to a clean, healthy and sustainable environment as a human right. The Issue includes the Strasbourg Principles of International Environmental Human Rights Law, which provide a strong foundational reference for legal obligations in this contested area of law.’

See further information on the book.
