Justice discourses and the global environment: Diverse perspectives on an uneven landscape

Ross Gillard, Lucy Ford, Gabriela Kuetting

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Discussions of justice in Global Environmental Politics (GEP) have taken on many different hues. Questions of equitable access to clean environments and natural resources are central to environmental justice discourses. They seek to expose the unequal distribution of environmental degradation and challenge the uneven recognition of different groups’ interests in governing environmental issues. Often couched within traditional state-centric dichotomies of ‘North/South’ or ‘developed/developing’ relations, a range of justice issues has emerged within international debates about sustainable development, global environmental governance and development entitlements.
