Summary
Westra (philosophy, ethics, environmental law, US, Canadian, and Italian universities) contends that existing law regarding human rights is inadequate. For that reason she argues that human rights should be re-defined and environmental law and policies reformulated to strike the appropriate balance between individual and collective rights and responsibilities. At this point, she notes, there are many domestic and international laws and policies to protect individual rights, but far fewer for collective rights (such as those for unborn and future generations). Topics include the theory of basic collective rights for law and morality, collective rights, globalization, and democracy in practice, and world law or international legal instruments as they relate to the protection of basic collective human rights.
