Première Assemblée des Dark Series : Justice environnementale

Past: Saturday, January 9, 2016 at 3:30 PM


Organized in collaboration with Françoise Vergès, Chair Global South(s) at Collège d’études mondiales de la Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme.

A cartography of polluting industries, intensive agriculture, intensive mining, nuclear power plants, etc. show the flagrant inequalities that exist within the geographical distribution of the polluting industries, often built near impoverished or minority areas. This first assembly will be focused on the consequences of these risky activities on the environment and on their repercussions in terms of public health. Through a series of case studies the assembly will address the notion of environmental justice, green capitalism, North/South divide, or the future of indigenous peoples in relation to environmental transformations.

With :
Bruno Barrillot (Co-founder of the Observatoire des armements), Luc Multigner (Director of Research, Inserm), Bronwyn Lay (Lawyer), Jade Lindgaard (Journalist), Uwe H. Martin (Photojournalist), Jacopo Ottaviani (Journalist), Françoise Vergès (Political Scientist, Chair of Global South(s) at Collège d’études mondiales of Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme), Alexis Zimmer (PhD in Epistemology and History of Sciences and Techniques)

The talks will be held in French and English
