University of East Anglia Global Environmental Justice Group

Global Environmental Justice Research Group

We are an interdisciplinary group of scholars from the University of East Anglia interested in the links between social justice and environmental change at local and global scales.

We study injustices in different areas of contemporary environmental governance, and we are actively involved in envisioning and supporting more effective forms of environmental governance and social mobilisation.

We seek to place justice analysis at the heart of environmental governance, with a particular emphasis on promoting environmental justice for those suffering from poverty and disempowerment. Our interest in identifying global connections and dynamics is combined with explicit attention to local social and environmental struggles.

We value exchanging perspectives and collaborating with a number of actors including local communities, land and resource users, other researchers, environmental activists, policy-makers, development professionals and students.
