Book description

This book presents an argument for environmental human rights as the basis of intergenerational environmental justice. It argues that the rights to clean air, water, and soil should be seen as the environmental human rights of both present and future generations. It presents several new conceptualizations central to the development of theories of both human rights and justice, including emergent human rights, reflexive reciprocity as the foundation of justice, and a communitarian foundation for human rights that both protects the rights of future generations and makes possible an international consensus on human rights, beginning with environmental human rights. In the process of making the case for environmental human rights, the book surveys and contributes to the entire fields of human rights theory and environmental justice.

Reviews

'The Human Right to a Green Future does provide a good survey and application of political and philosophical thinkers and their reflections on justice and human rights … the book is a welcome addition for researchers considering issues of environmental human rights from a theoretical and multi-disciplinary perspective.'

Andrew Sanger Source: Web Journal of Current Legal Issues

'… Richard P. Hiskes offers a highly original … response with The Human Right to a Green Future. What is original about this work is the way in which [he] combines arguments from the realms of human rights and intergenerational justice in an attempt to make a case for, as he puts it, ‘gathering the collective will necessary to preserve the planet’ … Hiskes sets the bar laudably high for those communities that his argument can comfortably and rather uncontroversially be extended to, namely, western liberal democratic states with a settled political culture and stable political institutions.'

Source: International Affairs

'This is a far-reaching book that presents a seminal interpretation of intergenerational justice and a renewed landscape for rights, justice and community. Hiskes' narrative is saturated with responses to salient figures in philosophy and political theory. I regret that [this] synopsis cannot capture the range and richness of his account.'
