This article is a book review of Stephen J Turner’s book A Substantive Environmental Right: An Examination of the Legal Obligations of Decision-Makers Towards the Environment. The author examines Turner’s draft accord to realise a ‘substantive human right to a good environment.’ The article concludes that the accord raises important questions for legal scholars, particularly around legislating towards a ‘good environment.’
