FROM WORLD HERITAGE TO ENVIRONMENTAL PATRIMONY

Andrei Duţu-Buzura

Abstract


Environmental law has proven itself to be a major challenge to all traditional
branches of law, given its “horizontal” perspective and functioning, by encompassing
elements and institutions from almost all of them, and by offering new insights and
approaches to long consecrated concepts and juridical mechanisms.
The relation between civil law, one of the oldest fields of regulation of any legal
system, and environmental law, a creation of the late XXth century, have proven itself to be
not only intriguing and original, but also necessary, in view of the creation of the juridical
structures fit to face the imperatives of the social, scientific and economic developments
currently in course. By interfering with elementary concepts, such as property right and
patrimony, environmental law has brought up the opportunity of creating new juridical
theoretical structures, corresponding to the actual necessities of the beginning of the XXIst
century.
This paper proposes construct following these lines, the environmental patrimony,
having as theoretical models both the concept of patrimony, consecrated by civil law, and
common or natural heritage, as accepted in international law. As practical aspects, we turned
to the environmental protection mechanisms already in existence, thus to give a more
complete and functional structure as possible.
