Spatial Justice: Body, Lawscape, Atmosphere

Philippopoulos-Mihalopoulos, Andreas

9781138017382 - Spatial Justice: Body, Lawscape, Atmosphere

Artikelomschrijving

There can be no justice that is not spatial. Against a recent tendency to despatialise law, matter, bodies and even space itself, this book insists on spatialising them, arguing that there can be neither law nor justice that are not articulated through and in space. Spatial Justice presents a new theory and a radical application of the material connection between space - in the geographical as well as sociological and philosophical sense - and the law - in the broadest sense that includes written and oral law, but also embodied social and political norms. More specifically, it argues that spatial justice is the struggle of various bodies - human, natural, non-organic, technological - to occupy a certain space at a certain time. Seen in this way, spatial justice is the most radical offspring of the spatial turn, since, as this book demonstrates, spatial justice can be found in the core of most contemporary legal and political issues - issues such as geopolitical conflicts, environmental issues, animality, colonisation, droning, the cyberspace and so on.
