Summary
In the climate-pressed Anthropocene epoch, nothing could be more urgent than fresh engagements with the fractious relationships between 'humanity', law and the living order. This timely book intelligently combines theoretical reflections, doctrinal analyses and insights drawn from rights-based praxis to offer thoughtful - and at times provocative - engagements with the limitations of law as it faces the complexities of contemporary socio-ecological life-worlds in an age of climate crisis. Leading scholars in the field discuss, in four parts, Philosophical Investigations, Reconfiguring the Legal, Activism and Praxis, and Multi-level Reformulations, to offer imaginative intellectual engagements with a range of challenges vexing the human-environmental-legal 'interface'. Scholars and students of human rights and environmental law and practitioners in the field alike will find the book to be a timely and thoughtful engagement with urgent human dilemmas
