[en] environmental economic geography ; environmental justice ; inequalities
[en] The environmental dimension and sustainability-
related issues have increasingly gained momentum in
Economic Geography. This paper argues that integrating
the inequality perspective into Environmental Economic
Geography (EEG) and trying to disentangle the manifold
interrelationships between economic, social, and environmental
disadvantage could be worthwhile efforts. Based
on three case studies – the debate on urban environmental
justice in German cities, the spread of alternative food
systems and food-sharing initiatives in Germany, and the
socially selective migration in hazard prone areas in rural
coastal Bangladesh – we demonstrate that aspects of social
inequality indeed matter for EEG thinking.
