This book will appeal to anyone interested in environmental politics, environmental movements, and justice theory. The basic task of this book is to explore what, exactly, is meant by 'justice' in definitions of environmental and ecological justice. It examines how the term is used in both self-described environmental justice movements and in theories of environmental and ecological justice. The central argument is that a theory and practice of environmental justice necessarily includes distributive conceptions of justice, but must also embrace notions of justice based in recognition, capabilities, and participation. Throughout, the goal is the development of a broad, multi-faceted, yet integrated notion of justice that can be applied to both relations regarding environmental risks in human populations and relations between human communities and non-human nature.

Ölkrise, Wasserkonflikte, schwindende Ernährungssicherheit - die Botschaften von knappen Ressourcen häufen sich. Und dies in einer Welt mit wachsender Bevölkerung, zahllosen Armen und stolzen Nationen, die auch ihren Platz an der Sonne fordern. Ihr Recht auf Entwicklung kann man im Zeitalter der Globalisierung nicht bestreiten - und dennoch ist bereits jetzt die Biosphäre überfordert. Die Inder wollen Straßen und die Chinesen mehr Öl: Der Kampf um die knappe Natur wird die Krisen des 21. Jahrhunderts mitbestimmen. Ressourcenkonflikte, große und kleine, sind oft der unsichtbare Faktor hinter Chaos und Gewalt. Wo jedoch der Kuchen immer kleiner, der Hunger immer größer und die Gäste immer zahlreicher werden, da ist es höchste Zeit, nach Wegen einer gerechteren Verteilung von Ressourcen zu suchen. Dieses Buch, verfaßt von Fachleuten des international renommierten Wuppertal Instituts, liefert eine Analyse der Konfliktlagen. Es entwirft überdies Perspektiven einer Politik der Ressourcengerechtigkeit und umreißt die Konturen einer globalen Umwelt- und Wirtschaftspolitik, die gleichermaßen der Natur wie den Menschen verpflichtet ist. Ein wichtiges Informationswerk und ein Kompass für alle, die nach Wegen zu einer zukunftsfähigen Weltgesellschaft suchen.

In den Aufsätzen dieses Bandes verfolgt Axel Honneth seine Überlegungen zu einer Theorie der Anerkennung weiter, vertieft klassische Fragestellungen und erschließt neue Forschungsfelder. Im Vordergrund steht dabei die Absicht, die ursprünglich von Hegel entwickelten Ideen für eine zeitgenössische Konzeption der Gerechtigkeit fruchtbar zu machen. Es soll aber auch gezeigt werden, daß von einem normativen Begriff der Anerkennung aus eine Brücke zu sozialwissenschaftlichen Themen zu schlagen ist, wie sie in der soziologischen Gegenwartsdiagnose oder der Psychoanalyse verhandelt werden.

Environmental management involves making decisions about the governance of natural resources such as water, minerals or land, which are inherently decisions about what is just or fair. Yet, there is little emphasis on justice in environmental management research or practical guidance on how to achieve fairness and equity in environmental governance and public policy. This results in social dilemmas that are significant issues for government, business and community agendas, causing conflict between different community interests. Natural Resources and Environmental Justice provides the first comprehensive, interdisciplinary examination of justice research in Australian environmental management, identifying best practice and current knowledge gaps. With chapters written by experts in environmental and social sciences, law and economics, this book covers topical issues, including coal seam gas, desalination plants, community relations in mining, forestry negotiations, sea-level rise and animal rights. It also proposes a social justice framework and an agenda for future justice research in environmental management. These important environmental issues are covered from an Australian perspective and the book will be of broad use to policy makers, researchers and managers in natural resource management and governance, environmental law, social impact and related fields both in Australia and abroad.

From St. Louis to New Orleans, from Baltimore to Oklahoma City, there are poor and minority neighborhoods so beset by pollution that just living in them can be hazardous to your health. Due to entrenched segregation, zoning ordinances that privilege wealthier communities, or because businesses have found the ‘paths of least resistance,’ there are many hazardous waste and toxic facilities in these communities, leading residents to experience health and wellness problems on top of the race and class discrimination most already experience. Taking stock of the recent environmental justice scholarship, Toxic Communities examines the connections among residential segregation, zoning, and exposure to environmental hazards. Renowned environmental sociologist Dorceta Taylor focuses on the locations of hazardous facilities in low-income and minority communities and shows how they have been dumped on, contaminated and exposed. Drawing on an array of historical and contemporary case studies from across the country, Taylor explores controversies over racially-motivated decisions in zoning laws, eminent domain, government regulation (or lack thereof), and urban renewal. She provides a comprehensive overview of the debate over whether or not there is a link between environmental transgressions and discrimination, drawing a clear picture of the state of the environmental justice field today and where it is going. In doing so, she introduces new concepts and theories for understanding environmental racism that will be essential for environmental justice scholars. A fascinating landmark study, Toxic Communities greatly contributes to the study of race, the environment, and space in the contemporary United States.

This Handbook defines, illustrates, and challenges the field of environmental political theory (EPT). Through a broad range of approaches, it shows how scholars have used concepts, methods, and arguments from political theory and closely related disciplines to address contemporary environmental problems. Topics include the relationship of EPT to traditions of political thought; EPT conceptualizations of nature, the environment, community, justice, responsibility,rights, and flourishing; explorations of the structures that constrain or enable the achievement of environmental ends; and analyses of methods for fostering environmental change.
