Environmental Justice is a transdisciplinary framework to study the geographical and economic distribution of various socio-environmental conflicts (e.g. air/water/soil pollution, climate change impacts) on different groups.
Environmental Justice draws on a rich theoretical and methodological portfolio from environmental sciences and environmental studies, environmental ethics and social sciences.
Thematically, we study the socio-economic distribution of climate change impacts and other environmental conflicts and policies on different communities.
We are collaborating with the interfaculty institute in environmental sciences.
