Environmental Constitutionalism

Environmental Constitutionalism

Elgar Research Reviews in Law

James R. May and Erin Daly

Environmental constitutionalism is a new concept for protecting local and global environmental conditions by invoking national and subnational constitutional law. As constitution-drafters in all legal traditions commit to environmental stewardship, protection and sustainability, courts are increasingly called upon to vindicate protected environmental rights in both their substantive and their procedural aspects. Designed for judges, advocates, and policy-makers as well as scholars in the field, this research review discusses key writings on environmental constitutionalism from around the world, drawing attention to its contours, its challenges, and its potential for enhancing both environmental protection and constitutional governance in theory and context.
