Speaker: Dr Muna Dajani (LSE)

In Palestine, the normalisation and depoliticisation of climate change discourse have effectively diminished the struggle for liberation and self-determination to a state-building project and humanitarian aid interventions.

Without addressing the historical context of colonial and settler colonial legacies, the prevailing narrative on climate change is profoundly flawed, colonial and presents a distorted and incomplete representation of Palestinian realities. Reconceptualising Palestine within the framework of climate justice enables a shift in narrative that underscores the systematic denial of Palestinian rights to their historical, current, and prospective ecological existence on their land.

This repositioning not only challenges dominant discourses but also amplifies the call for an equitable recognition of climate impacts and responsibilities.
