The Human Rights Fundaments of Conservation in the Context of the Extraction of Energy Resources


Since the performance of human rights depends on the environment and on access to natural resources, this book shows the extent to which the negative environmental impact arising from extraction operations prevents the effective realization of human rights.

The book is aimed at stakeholders in the extractive/energy industries but can just as well be used by activists, campaigners and other parties who want to understand and utilise the relationship between extractive industries and human rights law (substantive case law and procedure).

The book also deals with the Texaco-Chevron case and its implications on the corporate responsibility of transnational enterprises.
