Abstract
First paragraph: This special issue contributes empirical analyses to the evolving research programme on human rights and climate change within international relations (IR) scholarship. We aim to supplement the existing normative debate within political philosophy and political theory on international, environmental and intergenerational justice (for example, Hiskes 2009; 2010; Woods 2010; Shue 2011; Arnold 2011) with empirical insights that regard human rights as a yardstick for climate-relevant action. We pay particular attention to institutionalization processes at the intersection of human rights and climate change.
