MAIS 637 - Human Rights & Envt’l Justice

Unit(s): 4

This class considers the histories, debates, and contemporary case studies surrounding human rights and environmental justice. The adverse effects of climate change pose a serious risk to fundamental rights to life, health, food, culture, self-determination, and an adequate standard of living; yet protections of some human rights, such as the right to development and right to property, have also resulted in environmental degradation. Utilizing a scholar-activist approach, this course delves into the theories and literature on the human-nature relationship and the development of effective protections, as well as engage in practically-oriented analysis and writing (such as op-eds, policy proposals, and case assessments).
