About the Author

Polly Higgins is a barrister and international environmental lawyer who demystifies our environmental crises from a legal perspective. Advocating a crime of ecocide - 'extensive damage, destruction to or loss of ecosystems' she has one basic overriding tenet, first do no harm. The Ecologist Magazine voted her one of the 'Worlds Top 10 Visionary Thinkers', and she has been nominated 'The Lawyer for Planet Earth' by the 2010 Performance Awards.


"A SIMPLE expedient, yet how revolutionary! A global standard of care would reconfigure the entire edifice of international justice on the foundation of Earth Jurisprudence... Eradicating Ecocide brims with hope and reads like a mystery novel." Sierra Club, BC // "... THE BOOK isn't another wild diatribe against business - rather it is an examination of international law and how environmental protection has somehow been left by the wayside ... [It] asks everyone to re-examine the legal framework within which we are attempting to accomplish this, and provides business leaders with a golden opportunity of making it happen." corporate-eye.com // "... LAYS THE framework for us to lobby our leaders for real environmental laws and contains tips on taking action..." The Observer Magazine // "WITHIN the UN framework, the concept behind the sacred trust is to ask for 'community interests to be placed over private and corporate decisions.'" Amelia's Magazine
