The Earth Law Center published an initial report on the co-violations of human rights and Rights of Nature in 2015, and published this updated version in 2016. This new and improved report examines 100 additional case studies of rights co-violations, such as arrests and murders of frontline environmental defenders around the world. According to the report’s findings, 28 percent of human rights violations involved at least one murder and 30 percent of them involved harm to Indigenous peoples’ rights. The goal of the report is to propose solutions which can prevent these harms from destroying peoples and Nature. There is an increasing need to transform the current legal systems to reflect the shared well-being of humans and the natural world. Photo credit: Earth Law Center
