International environmental law and the global south (2013-2015)
Research theme: Environmental justice and the global south.
The International Environmental Law and Global South project examines both the historical origins of the North-South divide in European colonialism as well as its contemporary manifestations in a range of issues including food justice, energy justice, indigenous rights, trade, investment, extractive industries, human rights, land grabs, hazardous waste, and climate change.
Born out of the recognition that global inequality and profligate consumerism present threats to a sustainable planet, this project makes a unique contribution to international environmental law by emphasising the priorities and perspectives of the global South.
Professor Jona Razzaque collaborated with Carmen Gonzalez (Seattle University, USA), Sumudu Atapattu (University of Wisconsin, USA) and Professor Shawkat Alam (Macquarie University, Australia).
