  • Does normative legal philosophy also have a potential critical function vis-à-vis existing, empirically provable injustice where the injustice is not so much promoted or brought about by discriminatory laws, incorrect court rulings or actions contrary to human rights in the sense of an ideology, but rather by legislative and political laissez-faire or even omission (cf. e.g. mediterranean migrant crisis, anthropogenic climate change or pandemics)? From my point of view, this should be the case (but where is it explicitly stated and conceptually discussed?).
  • Which concepts from the field of normative legal philosophy/ legal ethics could be used to transparently and rationally criticise such state and supranational omissions from a normative perspective? Should new concepts of legal ethics be developed, can existing concepts be adapted? Who are the primary addressees? From my point of view, the minimum connection between law, serving as the basis of state action, and justice, which can be assessed against Radbruch's formula, enables a normative evaluation of state and supranational omissions, but also provides the contours for corresponding (political) duties to act.
What is your opinion regarding these issues?
Some legal philosophical approaches to these questions can be found in my paper "Extreme Wrong Committed by National and Supranational Inactivity: Analyzing the Mediterranean Migrant Crisis and Climate Change from a Legal Philosophical Perspective", Göttingen 2021.

I believe legal theory is a tremendous force in the identification of those gaps in legislation. I see legislators all over the planet engaged in the erosion of democratic processes because they are trapped into their own epistemological limitations. Fundamental rights are more than ever under siege, and to move forward into producing a legal theory that identifies the limitations of what has been done so far is badly needed. The functional disconnect between the mandates of international law and national realities is blastering.

Who has done or wants to do research on how technology can scale moral courage--can make it far easier to recruit &commit critical mass numbers of volunteers for nonviolent civil resistance. campaigns? And how can I reach them to invite them to a brainstorm session (maybe several) on what might be the behavioral levers that are most likely to motivate most "concerned" but not activist people to minimize their fears sufficiently and inspire "their better angels" to commit to tactics that history has proven are the most effective for achieving positive system change in the battles against greed, racism, autocracy and ignorance; to be able to recruit the numbers necessary to vastly improve our chances to save what is still savable of Mother Nature and democracy in the little time we have left.' Entre to senior level programmers, or crowdfunding social media mavens would also be especially appreciated, as well as possible research interns. Any location.

From my little findings, I realize that the dimensions of the concept of environmental justice include distribution justice, recognition justice, and procedural justice. I want to know the indices that make up each of these dimensions as well as the method(s) to ascertain the extent by which progress is achieved towards environmental justice. I welcome links to research output as well.
Many thanks and kind regards.

Juan Lozano Benavent , thank you for the information. I had a visit on LIFE Albufera and gained a lot both from the innovations and the reports. I had to use a translator for some documents though which really helped. I am working on a wetland of international importance in Nigeria which is the Upper Orashi forest. I can build on what I have learnt to ascertain indicators particular to the wetland through surveys from the residents close to the wetland and interviews from Organizations/Agencies involved in conserving the wetland.
Many thanks.

Abstract. Many empirical studies on urban environmental justice have focused on the unequal distribution of exposure to environmental goods and bads. While this work is important to unveil patterns of socio-ecological disparity, environmental justice theories have long called for a wider interpretation, including notions of justice based in recognition and participation, and a stronger link with broader social and spatial justice concerns. This particularly applies to environmentally motivated policies that inadvertently affect other social, economic or cultural aspects of urban life. Thus, our answers to environmental inequalities should always be seen in relation with other justice issues (e.g. with regard to transport, housing, employment, local amenities), include fair means for participation and respect the variable needs of different communities. In this session, we want to expand urban environmental justice research in fruitful and innovative ways, by exploring multiple meanings of environmental justice, how they link to other fairness issues in specific places and situations, and how these concepts are mobilised and interpreted by different stakeholders.

Title: Dynamics of urban greening. Distribution and production of urban green space in Milan
Author: Oscar Azzimonti
PhD candidate in Urban Studies (URBEUR). Department of Sociology and Social Research, University of Milan-Bicocca
Abstract
The environmental impact of the global and massive processes of urbanisation, along with the impellent consequences of climate change (i.e., socio-environmental disasters, extreme events, etc.), forces to acknowledge the importance and to rethink the role of urban green space. The green space and the related ecosystem services have become a crucial issue in urban governance: a relevant element for urban planning, a valuable investment for developers and a demand from city dwellers’ bottom-up organisations.
Against this context, the research, drawing from the conceptual and analytical tools of environmental justice, political ecology and ecological economy, focuses on the social distribution and production of urban green space in Milan. The objective is to comprehend on the one hand the role of green space in contemporary processes of urbanisation and, on the other, the ways in which urban governance may influence the ecological and the social impact of greening.
The paper therefore puts forward a spatial analysis of the distribution of the supply of urban green spaces and of some of the main ecosystem services they provide, in relation to the socio-economic conditions of urban dwellers (the demand side). Subsequently, the research delves into the socio-economic and political processes behind greening, spanning the meaning of greening in regeneration projects, grassroot initiatives and planning strategies.

Brulle's framework (1996) for classifying environmental discourses (or simply, types of environmentalism) includes conservation, preservation, health, deep ecology, environmental justice, Eco-feminism and other strands of environmental philosophy that developed in the course of history of the environmental movement. I am interested in measures (e.g. scales) of individual environmental philosophy. In other words, can we examine which environmental philosophy an activist espouses?
Thank you.

Hi Nikolay,
Good luck with this research - I'm interested in your outcomes! I know a PhD student who worked with environmental values (not philosophies) for his Honours research - here's a link as it may be of use or interest. http://www.gpem.uq.edu.au/docs/BEM-theses/Althor2014.pdf
