Global Environmental Constitutionalism in the Anthropocene

By Louis J. Kotz

There is persuasive evidence suggesting we are on the brink of human-induced ecological disaster that could change life on Earth as we know it. There is also a general consensus among scientists about the pace and extent of global ecological decay, including a realisation that humans are central to causing the global ecological crisis. This new epoch has been called the Anthropocene. This book seeks to answer this central question: from the perspective of the Anthrocopene, what is environmental constitutionalism and how could it be extrapolated to formulate a global framework? In answering this question, Louis Kotz offers the first systematic conceptual framework for global environmental constitutionalism in the epoch of the Anthrocopene.
