Addressing injustice in urban greenspace

An article on justice and urban greenspace, written by IWSN researchers based at the University of Arizona, has been published in the journal Sustainability.

A Multidisciplinary Approach to Analyzing Questions of Justice Issues in Urban Greenspace, a qualitative review by Adriana A. Zuniga-Teran and Andrea K. Gerlak from the Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy, explores “the diverse disciplinary approaches to justice in urban greenspace to identify patterns and trends in how justice is conceptualized and realized”.

The authors conclude: “Our results suggest that the various solutions proposed in the diverse streams of scholarship often call for solutions that transcend individual disciplinary boundaries. This finding supports the need for collaborative and cross-disciplinary work to effectively address injustice in urban greenspace”.

The research was funded by the Agnese Nelms Haury Program in Environment and Social Justice at the University of Arizona, with support from IWSN and the Inter American Institute for Global Change Research (IAI) CRN3056.
