Intercultural Human Rights Law Review

First Page



This paper has a dubitative title. And this is for a good reason. It is meant to introduce the critical perspective in which I propose to assess the legacy of the 1992 Rio Declaration after almost a quarter of a century from its adoption. This retrospective outlook, it is hoped, may help assess the progress, if any, that international law has made in this field, at a time when we are facing the challenge of implementing the 2015 Paris agreement on climate change.
