Our current climate crisis signals a massive shift in the organization of the global economy as economic, political, and social actors grapple with the increasing costs and precarity associated with a carbon-based economy. These changes will usher in a new period of massive economic restructuring and a redistribution of resources—transitions that may exacerbate inequalities or, alternatively, may yield more equitable outcomes. Papers in this session grapple with the broad themes of climate, economy, and justice from a range of theoretical and methodological perspectives and in different geographic contexts.
