Environmental justice in the anthropocene


Climate Law and Gov 2019 event 6
Published in November 2019, Environmental Justice in the Anthropocene is a special edition of the King’s Law Journal compiled by the Climate Law and Governance Centre.

The Anthropocene era signals the time period in the Earth’s history where humans have had profound and permanent impact on Earth’s geology and ecosystems, including climate change, ocean acidification and massive biodiversity loss. This Journal edition attempts the difficult task of contemplating notions of justice during these conditions.

The special edition has contributions from legal practitioners, professors, Judges, students and artists from across the globe. It contains a mixture of substantive articles and shorter analysis pieces looking at a range of topics such as regulating chemical pollution, music for a warming planet, extinction rebellion activism, and adjudicating climate change, as well as book reviews analysing scholarly contributions to these topics.

It will be of interest to environmental lawyers, generalist lawyers, regulatory and justice scholars, and anyone interested in new perspectives about the changing world in which we live.
