Should the fundamental right to an adequate environment be provided in the constitution of any modern democratic state? Drawing on precedents from around the world, this book provides the first politically-focused analysis of this pivotal issue. Hayward compellingly demonstrates how the right is both necessary and effective, conducive to democracy, and serves the cause of international environmental justice.

Industry Reviews

"Melding legal, philosophical, moral, institutional and policy analysis, Hayward ably avoids masking his views in jargon, and clearly leads us through his arguments and logic. In making a convincing case for constitutional environmental rights, the book and the debate will engage anyone interested in the genre, ranging from students, lawyers, academics, NGOs, political decision-makers and the rights-conscious layperson."--CHOICE
