(In)justice in modelled climate futures : A review of integrated assessment modelling critiques through a justice lens
Summary, in English
This review helps substantiate how disciplinary and geographical assumptions and norms shape policy choices. Focusing mostly on the role of techno-economic framings and processes of model-based knowledge production, and drawing from critical justice theorists, such as Nancy Fraser, the article shows how dominant approaches to justice have overlooked questions of recognition and their subsuming distributional and participational concerns. It also points to the need to engage with other knowledge systems and approaches through cognitive justice, for a more transformative critique of policy relevant climate knowledge, as well as to strive for more diverse, equitable and inclusive policy options.
