Journal of Human Rights and the Environment

Sep 25, 2013

The most recent issue of the Journal of Human Rights and the Environment has just been published, and three of its articles are freely available to everyone. The editors’ announcement follows… :

The relationship between human rights and the environment is a fascinating, uneasy, and increasingly urgent one. JHRE is an international journal providing a strategic academic forum in which an extended interdisciplinary and multilayered conversation can take place concerning the challenges located at the interface of these two centrally important fields.

We are delighted to announce that issue 4:2 is now available.  Visit the journal’s online platform on Elgaronline to browse the contents and read abstracts.  Three articles in the current issue can also be downloaded for free.

You can also find details on how to subscribe.  We encourage you to consider recommending the journal to your library.
