The executive summary is here.


The endless increase of environmental injustice in the world is directly impacting more and more people on a daily basis. While impunity seems to be the order of the day, the need for procedural justice is growing. Making the most of the competences and knowledge brought together under the EJOLT project and its work on Law and Institutions the CDCA has compiled a manual that presents a number of legal tools and concepts already used by EJOs all over the world.

These concepts and tools from the civil and criminal system at international, regional and trans-national levels are presented together with interactive links to more details and technical information and to useful contacts for legal strategy capacity building of EJOs.
