Chapter 7: Property rights, environmental justice and worldly order – lessons from natural law
This Chapter provides an analysis of the relationship between property rights and justice in the context of the international environment. It suggests that the traditional dichotomy of anthropocentric and ecocentric viewpoints sheds no useful light on the question of justice, and that the problem is in reality one which demands to be considered from the perspective of natural law. The main body of the essay represents a gesture in the direction of such an account, as it can be collected from the thought of Aquinas and Grotius.
