Environmental Justice

Using research from, Rachel Stein-New Perspective on Environmental Justice: Gender, Sexuality, and Activism, and Alison Alkon and Agyeman Julian- Cultivating Food Justice: Race, Class, and Sustainability answer the following two questions:

Question 1
1 A) How have various authors discussed what counts as legitimate knowledge in environmental justice conflicts?

In other words, how do power and knowledge intersect in these struggles and why is this important?

B) Using the authors listed, what might be some implications of focusing so heavily on genetic causes of disease and illness?

How does such an emphasis reveal the importance of paying attention to power and inequality?

C) What is the Precautionary Principle?

Discuss the pros and cons of adopting such an approach to regulation. How might it suggest a re-ordering of power in society?

Question 2
2. A) Explain any two of the following theories:
  • risk society,
  • treadmill of production,
  • Eco-feminism, and
  • resource colonization.

Specifically, how does this theory speak to the intersections of environmental harm and social inequality?

B) Apply any two of these theories to at least one example from the readings mentioned above.

Specifically, explain the material using these theoretical frameworks.

C) In what way do these theories fail to fully explain this case(s)?

In other words, what do these theories overlook or perhaps place too much emphasis on?

Please follow the instructions provided and answer all the questions. Please use the books referenced above.

I understand this is a detailed description but do understand, I need this to be an A paper! Also spend approximately 3 pages per question.
