Political ecology

Politicise the debate on environments

We invite contributions analysing socio-ecological systems through conflicts, power relations and uneven distribution of environmental costs and benefits. Your submission should 1) describe the present-day ecological crisis from political-economic, cultural and epistemological perspectives; 2) analyse the historical processes that have led to the current crisis and how different social groups have been influenced by environmental problems in different geo-historical contexts; 3) develop new and imaginative ways to conceptualise nature-society relationships in different geopolitical, historical and cultural contexts in order to contribute to the design of a more inclusive and socially just environmental policy.​
