Just Transition

DIGITAL PUBLICATION – a series of scholars’ and practitioners’ think pieces on the idea that transition towards a low-carbon world requires justice and equity.

April 2018

The “Just Transition" is one of the concepts emerging in order to address important questions of how to identify and mobilize the processes, resources and actors that are necessary for setting the world on pathway to a low-carbon future.

In recent years, there has been a proliferation of references to “Just Transition", in numerous policy circles, philantrophic foundations, think tanks and NGOs. The concept's growing popularity has led to an expansion of its meanings.

Launched by the Just Transition Research Collaborative (JTRC) in partnership with the ISSC, the 'Just Transition(s)' forum seeks to address what it identifies as a need: to connect the social sciences and humanities with the Just Transition concept and those who use it, and with the climate and development conversation more broadly. Through a combination of concrete case studies and more conceptual analyses, the forum acts as a shared space for academics and other interested parties to share their views (and voice their concerns) on the Just Transition, its meanings, its current uses and its potential.

The new “Just Transition" online publication:

The Just Transition Research Collaborative (JTRC) project is run jointly by UNRISD and Edouard Morena (University of London Institute in Paris) and supported by the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung.
