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.
"Christopher Miller's book is a notable milestone in this ongoing debate and, as mentioned above, also a valuable treatise on current developments in environmental law" Journal of Environmental Law Vol 11, No 1
