Human Rights Standards for Conservation: an analysis of responsiblities, rights and redress for just conservation
This research report presents a synthesis of the relevance of human rights standards to different conservation actors, an assessment of current standards and trends in international law, and an analysis of the various redress mechanisms available when rights are violated. It concludes with a number of options for further elaborating a set of minimum human rights standards to be applied to all conservation initiatives. It is hoped that this work will inject fresh energy into the ongoing debate about how best to tackle conservation injustice.

Despite increased recognition that conservation initiatives can violate the human rights of indigenous peoples and local communities, addressing 'unjust' conservation remains a contemporary problem. IIED and Natural Justice sought feedback on a series of papers that aimed to serve as a foundation for clear guidance about the human rights obligations of conservation actors, and specific details of the rights and forms of redress available.
