Environmental Politics

Environmental politics and social movements

Moving society to more sustainable modes necessarily entails questioning the current distribution of power. Politics at LUCID are understood, not only as the operations of the state but, as the broader dynamics of power in society in general with particular attention to the subjects wielding and vying for it. Thus understood, politics of the environment play out in multiple arenas at many levels, from the international relationships between states, international organisations and transnational corporations to grass roots struggles, for recognition and redistribution, in the form of social movements. These, and much between, form the content under analysis within the theme: environmental politics and social movements.
