Incorporating the human right to a favourable environment in the Czech constitutional Charter of Fundamental Rights and Freedoms dates back to 1993. However, this right remains very rarely applied, due to several legislative and interpretative reasons. In her contribution, Hana Müllerová will introduce the cornerstone cases before the Czech Constitutional Court that helped to establish the current judicial interpretation of the right but that at the same time led to entombing its practical enforcement. She will reflect the merit of human rights related directly to environmental quality as such and the preconditions that seem to be crucial in order to have this human right representing the so called third generation of human rights a living part of the human rights legislation.
