Svoboda, Toby; Buck, Holly Jean; Suarez, Pablo (2018): Climate engineering and human rights. In Environmental Politics 366 (1), pp. 1–20. DOI: 10.1080/09644016.2018.1448575.

"In this Forum, three scholars discuss how climate engineering will pose novel human rights challenges, and may well force reconsideration of how human rights are applied as a guide to action. Following a short introduction, the first section introduces three competing approaches to human rights, arguing views which emphasize fairness or attempt to maximize satisfaction are more promising than one viewing human rights as inviolable ‘side-constraints’. The second section draws lessons from climate migration that relevant for climate engineering in terms of incorporating a human rights approach to duties, rights, and participation."
