Title: An assessment of current regulation and suggestions for a citizen-centered approach to the governing of UK hydraulic fracturing
Authors: Aczel, M

Item Type: Chapter
Abstract: This chapter explores the specifi c local context of shale gas extraction in Lancashire in the north of England and examines how policy development can strengthen protections. We demonstrate here that a broader understanding of impacts and an improved approach to assessing these impacts is needed. We further examine how international legal and policy frameworks may play a part in protecting citizens and their communities when local and national legal regimes fail to safeguard human rights and access to justice.
