Description

This thesis discusses why we must question our current environmental ethic and shift from anthropocentrism to non-anthropocentrism. The United Nations is the international law enforcement body of the world, and wants to preserve human rights as well as a sustainable environment for future generations. To do this, we must shift away from the anthropocentrism in international law and develop a document that reflects this as well as what should be done to protect the environment.
