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.
