Environmental Justice and Sustainability part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching Environmental Justice: Interdisciplinary Approaches:Courses
The course investigates the ethical and moral dimensions of environmental choices, and the legal, philosophical, political, and economic underpinnings of various theories of justice. A major focus is the inequitable distribution of environmental risks and the implications of policies that attempt to combat these risks through case studies. Lectures are used at first to establish the framework and theories of justice, which is then followed by case studies in the form of class discussion. Student work is assessed through two short set essays, a final research paper and a poster session.
