New Directions in the Analysis of Environmental Justice

The Kenan Institute for Ethics and the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, in coordination with faculty at the Duke Department of Economics and the Nicholas School of the Environment, will host an invite-only workshop on new directions in the analysis of environmental justice at Duke University August 23 and 24.

The workshop is designed to facilitate discussion around research approaches across disciplines, identify future research directions, and facilitate longer-term collaboration among attendees. The aim is to connect those from a variety of fields (including law, economics, sociology, political science, philosophy, public policy, and health) with an interest in environmental justice scholarship. Our broader goal is to build long-term and committed collaborations on cutting edge research around issues of environmental justice that have practical relevance for informing policy.

This event is by invitation only.
