The Environment Charter : Hard Law or Political Gadget ?

The Environment Charter has been presented by some as a political
gadget. Its drafting and its adoption have been accompanied by legal
disputes regarding its actual reach. Yet, having to deal with a new
societal problem, it should not come as a surprise that the elaboration
and content of the Charter should have gone beyond the beaten
track. The Charter is innovative both in its form and its content,
notably when it asserts a human right to the environment. Its normative
dimension, which has been questioned because of its form, will
eventually become a reality : it is indeed a constitutional document
that will impose itself to all and that entails promising, although still
mysterious, developments for future generations.
