Environmental Constitutionnalism: What Impact on Legal Systems ?

Abstract : Environmental constitutionalism is founded on ideological doctrines, such as liberalism and environmentalism. It aims to enhance comparative law methods leading to the establishment of general principles that protect the environment within the constitution. This is the first book that presents the topic to European readers working in the field of environmental protection - involving members and organizations within civil society, policymakers, national and international officers, law students, and legal and non-legal scholars. The book begins with detailed studies of France, Germany, Switzerland, India and Brazil. Thereafter, it highlights the impact of the French Environmental Charter on administrative law, company law, and compensation methods for environmental harm. Finally, the book takes an unprecedented look at EU law, whose legal standards are discussed in light of environmental constitutionalism. The various contributions are written either in French or in English, as befits the comparative nature of the subject matter.
