Sendes vanligvis innen 5-15 dager
Environmental justice encompasses the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people - regardless of race, class or colour - with respect to the development, implementation and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations and policies that could negatively impact their lifestyles. The focus of this volume is to offer a critical perspective, which advances the idea that environmental management and human rights are inherently interrelated. This book offers a unique angle on this complex topic by providing an understanding of environmental justice from both a United States and an international perspective. Each chapter covers a different case study that examines people and groups who have been unfairly exposed to unreasonable environmental conditions in different parts of the world. Essential reading for those with an interest in the social impact of environmental issues, this book also will be of benefit to environmental planners and regulatory bodies. The book's approach is interdisciplinary and features cross-curriculum perspectives including anthropological, business, sociological and cultural viewpoints.
