Local Justice, Global Climate Injustice? Inequality and tree planting in Thailand
Debates on climate justice often involve competing discourses of justice among social actors across governance scales. Drawing on ethnographic research on tree planting schemes in Thailand, Witchuda Srang-iam argues that perceived inequalities and justice at the local level could sustain oppression and injustice on a global scale. She calls for a situated theory of justice and a bottom-up approach to redress climate-related inequalities between and among affluent polluters and poor victims.
