Symposium on Env. Justice & SDGs @GNLU [March 15-16, Gandhinagar]: Submit by March 8

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are imbued with concern for environmental justice. Almost every goal – from ending poverty to combatting climate change to revitalizing global partnerships – is dependent on enhancing environmental justice. Goal 16, in particular, with its emphasis on access to justice and effective, accountable and inclusive institutions, highlights the strong connections between sustainable development and environmental justice.

We invite papers on one or more of the SDGs and various aspects of environmental justice, such as:

  • Procedural justice: Opportunities for participation in the political and legal processes that create and manage environmental policy, e.g., public interest litigation (PIL), community involvement in environmental impact assessment;
  • Distributive justice: Equity in the distribution of risks, benefits and costs of environmental decision making;
  • Recognitional justice: Recognition of the diversity of participants and experiences in affected communities, including non-human species and abiotic parts of the ecosphere; and
  • Restorative justice: Attempts made to mitigate or remediate adverse impacts on people and the environment, e.g., enforcement of licensing conditions, rehabilitation and resettlement policies.

The sub-themes for the symposium are as follows:

  • Use and abuse of the public interest litigation (PIL);
  • Innovative policies and programs of the government or state for enhancing distributive justice;
  • Legislative or policy analysis, including formulation, implementation or enforcement;
  • Executive challenges for implementing court judgements;
  • Progress and challenges for achieving sustainable development goals (SDG 16) related to environmental justice;
  • Assessing international capacity building programmes;
  • Empirical field-based case studies;
  • Gender analysis of processes, institutions, and outcomes;
  • Historical reviews of legislation, policy, institutions or jurisprudence;
  • Institutional analysis of specialized green courts and environmental tribunals;
  • Indigenous institutions and governance for environmental justice;
  • Alternative dispute resolution systems for environmental conflicts;
  • Monitoring SDG indicators for environmental justice; and
  • Theoretical, conceptual and methodological aspects

We encourage abstract submissions that are relevant to the above themes and sub-themes i.e., those that focus on the interactions between Environmental Justice and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

All abstracts must be submitted by no later than February 8th 2019, at midnight (Indian Standard Time).

We do not anticipate an extension beyond that date and strongly encourage you to submit your abstracts well before the deadline!

Abstracts will be reviewed by a committee of interdisciplinary scholars in the order they are received. Based on the academic rigor, relevance to conference theme, and innovativeness of the content, abstracts will be selected for the limited spots available for the presentation in the conference.

A selection of these papers will be considered for inclusion in a peer-reviewed edited volume and a special issue of the GNLU Journal of Law Development and Politics.
