The watershed moment s for the recognition and development of human rights mechanisms in international law were the creation of the United Nations in 1945 and t he Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) in 1948 . 1 Since then, the UDHR, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights ( ICCPR ) , 2 and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights ( ICESCR ) 3 — collectively the International Bill of Rights — have mainstreamed several human rights in the form of political, cultural, social , and economic rights. However, despite UDHR’s significance in human life and the enjoyment of human rights, the right to a clean environment could not find a place in any of these instruments.
