New Frontiers in Environmental Constitutionalism

Environmental constitutionalism examines the development, implementation and effectiveness of incorporating environmental rights, procedures, and policies into constitutions around the globe. Through alchemy of international engagement, constitutional reform, legislative implementation, and jurisprudential vindication – informed by legal scholars and civil society change agents – environmental constitutionalism is undeniably an influential and growing field of law and public policy with potential to advance and improve environmental outcomes in ways that only outright constitutionalism can.

The book examines new frontiers in the implementation of constitutional, international, and regional rights-based approaches to promote environmental protection.
