The latest Part of the EPLJ includes three interesting articles dealing with different aspects of environmental law. The first article comes from Dr Nicola Swayne and Angela Phillips and presents a critical analysis of the current and proposed carbon capture and storage legal frameworks across a number of jurisdictions in Australia. The second article is by Dr Andrew Sneddon and considers the ways in which Australia’s courts and tribunals have responded to Aboriginal objections to proposed mining and development activities on the grounds of potential adverse impacts to “sacred sites”. The final article, by Andrea Bassett, explores the inherent conflict of openly presenting sites to the public while also fully protecting their World Heritage values.
The last Part of the first Volume of the Property Law Review includes articles on covenants as regulation, township leasing on Aboriginal land, Europe, human rights and land law in the 21st century and the non-restoration of land in South Africa.
