Comparative law notes


An example of a diffuse right is the right to a healthy environment as provided for in article 225 of the Brazilian Federal Constitution, which reads: All have the right to an environment that is ecologically in equilibrium, available for common use by the people and essential to a healthy quality of life, which imposes on both the government and society as a whole the duty of protecting and preserving it for both the present and future generations.
