The Right to Nature : Social Movements, Environmental Justice and Neoliberal Natures, Paperback / softback Book

The Right to Nature : Social Movements, Environmental Justice and Neoliberal Natures Paperback / softback

Edited by Elia Apostolopoulou, Jose A. Cortes-Vazquez

Part of the Routledge Studies in Environmental Policy series


Since the 2008 financial crash the expansion of neoliberalism has had an enormous impact on nature-society relations around the world.

In response, various environmental movements have emerged opposing the neoliberal restructuring of environmental policies using arguments that often bridge traditional divisions between the environmental and labour agendas.

The Right to Nature explores the differing experiences of a number of environmental-social movements and struggles from the point of view of both activists and academics.

This collection attempts to both document the social-ecological impacts of neoliberal attempts to exploit non-human nature in the post-crisis context and to analyse the opposition of emerging environmental movements and their demands for a radically different production of nature based on social needs and environmental justice.

It also provides a necessary space for the exchange of ideas and experiences between academics and activists and aims to motivate further academic-activist collaborations around alternative and counter-hegemonic re-thinking of environmental politics. This book will be of great interest to students, scholars and activists interested in environmental policy, environmental justice, social and environmental movements.
