Practical Justice Initiative Director Prof. Jeremy Moss has co-authored a new book with Dr. Lachlan Umbers on the the relationship between non-state actors and climate justice. The book titled Climate Justice and Non-State Actors: Corporations, Regions, Cities, and Individuals investigates this relationship from a philosophical perspective.
Climate justice literature remains largely focused upon the rights and duties of states. Yet, for decades, states have failed to take adequate steps to address climate change. This has led some to suggest that, if severe climate change and its attendant harms are to be avoided, non-state actors are going to have to step into the breach. This collection represents the first attempt to systematically examine the climate duties of the most significant non-state actors – corporations, sub-national political communities, and individuals.
Targeted at academic philosophers working on climate justice, this collection will also be of great interest to students and scholars of global justice, applied ethics, political philosophy and environmental humanities.
