Taskforce on Planetary Justice in Earth System Governance Research

Description

See the Task Force Website for frequently updated information

The Planetary Justice Taskforce of the Earth System Governance Project brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars who are concerned with questions of justice in the context of profound transformations of the earth system.

The Taskforce aims to address all normative dimensions related to justice in the context of sustainability governance. It is non-exclusive and includes questions related to both global and local scales, long and short term, practice and theory, all forms of governance and socio-economic processes, and human and non-human. Concerns of Planetary Justice relate to a diversity scales while also recognizing the connections between any scale and the earth system it is a part of.

It has the ambition to advance scientific understanding of justice as well as galvanize communities of research and practice to further consider and integrate planetary justice.

Practically, the Taskforce works to accommodate dialogue through maintaining an interactive website with frequent webinars, interdisciplinary workshops and panels on thematic issues at Earth System Governance conferences and other venues, and joint publications in the form of special issues and edited volumes with major university presses.

The Taskforce had a formal launch at a workshop in Utrecht in March 2018 and will have its first full meeting at the Taskforce Day of the ESG Conference in November 2018 in Utrecht.
