Environmental Justice in Latin America

This chapter describes the environmental disputes of Argentina in an effort to provide environmental justice outside of the legal context, and focuses on social efforts of gathering information about rights and finding ways to sustain such efforts. The solution to environmental justice involves interpreting environmental disputes through social efforts. The aim is to convert informal justice into formal justice through active efforts of the legal and political systems. The chapter emphasizes three cases of environmental disputes in Argentina, which demonstrate different possibilities and have identical objectives, characteristics, and development. The informal effort aimed at ensuring environmental justice in Argentina has been conducted with significant coordination, with the participation of few people.
