Justice écologique et adaptation au changement climatique : le cas des petits territoires insulaires


  • Alexandre BERTHE
  • Sylvie FERRARI


En s’appuyant sur les théories contemporaines de la justice, la contribution vise à apporter un éclairage sur l’identification des situations de justice associées à des espaces insulaires soumis au risque de submersion. En considérant le cas d’un seul Etat constitué de deux îles, puis celui d’un monde à deux Etats insulaires, l’analyse des principes de justice réalisée à partir de deux visions de la justice - une justice située et une justice globale - permet de définir les contours d’une justice écologique intergénérationnelle.
