Human Rights and Climate Change : The Law on Loss and Damage, Hardback Book

Human Rights and Climate Change : The Law on Loss and Damage Hardback

Part of the Routledge Studies in Human Rights series



This insightful and timely book examines the intersection of international climate change law and international human rights law with respect to loss and damage from climate change. Bringing together these two areas of the law, the volume reframes the debate on loss and damage law and offers the first systematic analysis of the legal consequences of Article 8 of the 2015 Paris Agreement, both independently and in light of the concurrent applicability of human rights law to climate change harms.

The author outlines the legal implications of Article 8 and the extent to which the application of a human rights perspective can contribute to the interpretation and development of those implications.

Accessible and engaging, this book has important implications for both legal doctrine and policy development at the international level. This book is a valuable resource for scholars, students, and practitioners in human rights, human rights law, climate change law, and international environment law.
