Earth Charter and International Law.
How does the Earth Charter Correlate with International Law?
– with an emphasis on environmental law–.
This is the new publication that the Earth Charter International Secretariat is launching, together with the University for Peace and Simon Bolivar University.
This document contains the results of a research project, whose general objective was to: “Identify relationships and coincidences between the Earth Charter principles and the principles contained in different instruments of International Law”.
This publication is the result of a collaborative effort between the University for Peace in Costa Rica, Simon Bolivar University in Venezuela and the Earth Charter International Secretariat, in the framework of the UNESCO Chair on Education for Sustainable Development and the Earth Charter. The research work was developed by Maria Elisa Febres, PhD student of the Simon Bolivar University, with the support of Professor Juan Carlos Sainz-Borgo from the International Law Department of the University for Peace, Mirian Vilela and Alicia Jimenez from the Earth Charter International Secretariat.
With the information of this publication, ECI Secretariat is building a database contained in a website that will facilitate the search of this publication (soon to be announced).
This is not intended as a finished product; therefore we invite people to make suggestions and contributions with the intention of complementing and enriching this work.
