How international law could help victims of environmental degradation

Monica Feria-Tinta and Simon Milnes have co-authoured an article for The Guardian on 21 February 2018 relating to a recent landmark ruling related to international law and the the environment. On 7 February 2018, an international court in Costa Rica – the Inter-American court of human rights – released an advisory opinion on environment and human rights. It not only recognises the right to a healthy environment as fundamental to the existence of humanity, but also has the potential to unlock real cross-border remedies for the victims of environmental degradation.
