Summer School and Workshop on Political Ecology, Environmental Justice, and Conflicts (July 2nd – July 11th 2012)
This course (in English, for masters and doctoral students) (20 hours of lectures, 2.5 ETCS) examines the global movement for environmental justice and focuses on socio-environmental conflicts at different scales and in different forms. The course is based on lectures and discussions and will also use videos and other materials prepared by ICTA/UAB researchers on their own research. The course is linked to some of the European research projects at ICTA: EJOLT, ENGOV, CLICO and URBLIV.
The course is divided into three parts: a first introductory section on theoretical underpinnings of environmental justice and conflicts, a second section presenting and discussing cases and dimensions of environmental conflicts (including climate justice, hydric justice, mining, oil and forest resources conflicts, and urban conflicts) and a third section on mechanisms to address and redress environmental injustice and inequalities.
The course can be taken for credit and is recognized by the European Transfer Credit System. It will be taught by Isabelle Anguelovski, Marco Armiero, Stefania Barca, Robert Bullard, Giorgos Kallis, Joan Martínez-Alier, David Szablowski, Jesus Ramos Martin, and associated ICTA researchers. Course sessions will take place at the UAB in Cerdanyola del Vallès, close to Barcelona.
