dc.description.abstractThe impact of environmental pollution and degradation cannot always be contained within the physical territory of a state; therefore, people living in neighbouring states are prone to suffer the brunt of such environmental catastrophes. Victims of these environmental cataclysms are rendered helpless owing to several principles of international law that restrain individuals from instituting actions on extraterritorial issues. Despite the unprecedented development of international environmental law and the emergence of environmental human rights in the 21st century, little attention has been paid to the extraterritorial implication of environmental pollution, as well as how victims of such environmental pollution can seek adequate remedy and compensation. The application of existing human rights treaties on extraterritorial environmental matters is nebulous and contentious. Interestingly, there are some growing developments in international law on this issue. This article will consider these developments and several other relevant issues.en_US
