Event description
PhilSoc in partnership with SEI present a discussion on the legal and philosophical limits to environmental justice in Australia.

About this event

The title is inspired by that of the Interim Report (December 2020) of the Joint Standing Committee on Northern Australia on the destruction of the Juukan Gorge by Rio Tinto mining operations. The event is a collaboration between the Sydney Environment Institute and the USyd Philosophy Society (PhilSoc) and aims to explore the socio-legal barriers to environmental justice in Australia, with comparisons to other countries most welcome.

A panel of researchers who sit at the intersection of law and Indigenous rights will discuss experiences of local communities, especially First Nations, with formal justice systems; access to justice; and the ability of the Courts to prevent or redress environmental wrongs.

Speakers

Samuel Naylor (Chair), USyd Philosophy Society

Professor Jakelin Troy, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Research, University of Sydney

Dr Sara Leon Spesny, Department of Sociology and Social Policy, University of Sydney

Gemma Viney, Department of Government and International Relations, University of Sydney
