SERI senior researcher Jackie Dugard has co-edited a new book entitled Climate Talk: Rights, Poverty and Justice together with Asunción Lera St. Clair and Siri Gloppen. The book is published by JUTA Law and attempts to fill some of the gaps in climate change scholarship by focusing on the climate narratives emerging in and around South Africa.Climate Talk cover image

The book explores how these narratives relate to broader issues of social justice and resource allocation, and the role of rights talk and legal strategies in the framing of the problems and solutions. In doing so, the book contributes to developing rights- and justice-based strategies for translating knowledge into action. Read more on the book here.
