While the climate crisis has become one of the concrete, current and dominant issues in human rights law, rights-based approaches to this crisis have increased.

As the individual complaint has become part of the domestic law in Turkey, the Constitutional Court application, which has become an important tool for those facing rights violations, is also becoming an important legal tool to improve the scope of rights.

This paper, written by Deniz Polat Akgün examines the Constitutional Court's view of the right to the environment and presents a new approach to the issue with its critique of the fundamental right to life.
