Session Abstract

Land use systems and land use governance are strongly influenced by values and norms (Seidl et al. 2012, Davy 2012). In recent years, one important discourse reflects the ethical dimension of justice, in detail about environmental justice and spatial justice (e.g. Basta 2016, Edwards/Reid/Hunter 2015). But up to now a broader discussion about theoretical approaches and conceptual consequences in land use contexts is missing. In a round-table session, current discussion lines (spatial justice, environmental justice, energy justice) will be briefly introduced by Weith, Köck and Gailing (five minutes each). All three persons are part of a new project about regional justice and fairness in Germany.

Subsequently, by all participants three main questions will be discussed:

- What means justice in land use and land governance? What do people want?

- What are adequate conceptual approaches?

- What are the challenges for transformative land use policy and regional development?

The contributions of the discussion, as well as the results, will be documented. We expect an intensive discussion about normative goals, contextual embeddedness as well as adequate concepts for their operationalization.

No contributions were assigned to this session.
