Tid: 2018-09-12 08:00 -- 2018-09-13 18:00
Plats: Malmö, Sweden
Målgrupp: Researchers

Recently, social scientists and philosophers have shown increased interest in questions of social, global and intergenerational justice related to energy production and consumption. Topics that have been discussed are, for example, questions about availability and affordability of energy and questions about the negative environmental impacts of energy production.

The capability approach is today one of the most influential theoretical frameworks for analyzing issues of justice, and there have been a few attempts to employ it within the field of energy justice. The purpose of the conference is to further explore the potential of the capability approach for conceptualizing and studying issues of  energy justice.
