Description

Environmental justice aspires to a healthy environment for all, as well as fair and inclusive processes of environmental decision-making.

In order to develop successful strategies to achieve this, it is important to understand the factors that shape environmental justice outcomes.

This optimistic, accessible and wide-ranging book contributes to this understanding by assessing the extent of, and reasons for, environmental justice/injustice in seven diverse countries - United States, Republic of Korea (South Korea), United Kingdom, Sweden, China, Bolivia and Cuba. Factors discussed include: race and class discrimination; citizen power; industrialisation processes; political-economic context; and the influence of dominant environmental discourses.

In particular, the role of capitalism is critically explored.

Based on over a hundred interviews with politicians, experts, activists and citizens of these countries, this is a compelling analysis aimed at all academics, policy-makers and campaigners who are engaged in thinking or action to address the most urgent environmental and social issues of our time.
