Climate justice is now an established area of scholarship that crosses disciplinary boundaries. However, despite the work of governments, activists and scholars to study and implement climate justice, the injustices of climate change – greenhouse gas pollution and the felt impacts of environmental changes resulting from that pollution – continue to increase. Realizing climate justice under these circumstances will require doing much more in the very near future; it will require new vision about the way forward. A Research Agenda for Climate Justice aims to foster and present a visionary and provocative research agenda that can help to illuminate alternative pathways for scholars, policymakers and activists. In addition to furthering climate justice as a scholarly field, the book seeks real-world impact: producing and sharing an agenda for research that can inform and guide the way forward for those doing the actual work of climate justice. A key aim is to stimulate innovative, alternative perspectives on climate justice – to explicitly avoid more of the same scholarship and more of the same policies.
