Human Rights in Natural Resource Development

José Juan

González Márquez

Oxford University Press

This chapter attempts to analyse precisely the legal framework relating to the environmental regulation of energy and mining activities, particularly with reference to the participation of civil society in the regulatory decision-making processes and in the assertion of more general rights to an adequate environment. It assesses the significance of these rights as premises of the sustainable development paradigm. Although this study is principally concerned with Mexican environmental rights, it also considers some issues dealing with the Central American countries, to the extent of available information. However, it notes that the economic, juridical, and social situation in Mexico is more similar to some of the South American countries such as Argentina and Chile than to those of Central America.

Keywords:   Mexico, Central America, environmental regulation, public participation, mining, sustainable development
