Pour une justice environnementale européenne. Le cas de la précarité énergétique


Author Info

  • Éloi Laurent


The European Union welfare states can no longer ignore the environment in which individuals live (work, home, leisure) since it partly determines the factors affecting their health and wider well-being. It is therefore essential for EU member States and bodies to both adopt and adapt the requirement of environmental justice from the US context. This article suggests ways for such adaptation. After defining different categories of environmental inequalities, it illuminates a particular aspect: energy poverty or precariousness. The situation in the United Kingdom and France are reviewed before addressing the issues and modalities for an EU policy against fuel poverty.
