23 p, 346.0 KB Hydropower in the Himalayan hazardscape : strategic ignorance and the production of unequal risk / Huber, Amelie (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
Rapidly expanding hydropower development in areas prone to geological and hydro-climatic hazards poses multiple environmental and technological risks. Yet, so far these have received scant attention in hydropower planning processes, and even in the campaigns of most citizen initiatives contesting these dams. [...]

Populism, Hegemony, and the Politics of Natural Resource Extraction in Evo Morales's Bolivia / Andreucci, Diego (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
Is populism necessary to the articulation of counter‐hegemonic projects, as Laclau has long argued? Or is it, as Žižek maintains, a dangerous strategy, which inevitably degenerates into ideological mystification and reactionary postures? In this paper, I address this question by exploring the politics of discourse in Evo Morales's Bolivia. [...]

Emotions, power, and environmental conflict : Expanding the ‘emotional turn’ in political ecology / González Hidalgo, Marien (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Zografos, Christos (Universitat Pompeu Fabra)
Building on the framework of emotional political ecology, we seek to expand ways of studying the relationships between emotion, power, and environmental conflict. Our review of work in feminist studies, human geography, social psychology, social movement theory, and social and cultural anthropology suggests the need for a theoretical framework that captures the psychological, more-than-human, collective, geographical, and personal-political dimensions that intersect subjectivities in environmental conflicts. [...]

16 p, 362.2 KB Environmental justice movements in India : an analysis of the multiple manifestations of violence / Roy, Brototi (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Martínez Alier, Joan (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
With each passing year, defending land and water, livelihoods and cultures appears to become more violent. Against the alarming number of murders of environmental activists or environmental defenders, which is the easiest way to recognize violence, this article aims to analyse other visible and invisible ways in which violence is manifested.

Mapping and analyzing ecological distribution conflicts in Andean countries / Pérez Rincón, Mario Alejandro (Universidad del Valle (Cali, Colòmbia)) ; Vargas-Morales, Julieth (Universidad del Valle (Cali, Colòmbia)) ; Martínez Alier, Joan (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
The extractive sector is increasingly important in the GDP and export basket of the four Andean countries under study (ACs) (Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia). The analysis of an updated inventory of 296 environmental conflicts in the EJAtlas for these four countries reaches the following conclusions: extractivism causes environmental conflicts related to mining, fossil fuels, hydropower and biomass; indigenous, Afro-descendant and peasant communities are the most affected; behind the conflicts, there are not only environmental impacts but also social impacts that concern livelihoods, land deprivation and work insecurity, and also loss of cultural practices and cultural identity; most of the forms of collective action used in protests are peaceful, most notably petitions, street marches, media activism, lawsuits, while States and companies criminalize activists and are often violent (with about 75 cases in which there are deaths or disappearance of environmental defenders); socio-environmental movements (that sometimes include environmental NGOs) have achieved relative success, stopping 59 of the 296 conflict-generating projects and giving birth to new forms of resistance.

In this article we use the Urban Political Ecology approach to show that by analysing governance networks we can better understand the production of certain socio-environmental transformations that negatively affect some social groups while benefiting others. [...]

31 p, 434.2 KB A Review on Water-Energy Nexus and Directions for Future Studies : From Supply to Demand End / Yoon, Hyerim (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona)
The intrinsic links between water and energy have produced a new concept known as water-energy nexus (WEN), which has been increasingly studied by scholars and global institutions since the 1990s. This paper provides a review of water-energy nexus studies in an interdisciplinary manner starting from two major approaches—water for energy and energy for water—which focus principally on quantitative studies, but also on policy and institutional dimensions. [...]

15 p, 320.2 KB Mirando detrás de las percepciones de la naturaleza, el territorio, lo urbano y lo rural : el caso de Cuenca, Ecuador / Malo Larrea, Antonio (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
La forma en la que se problematiza el mundo real, se ve reflejada en los discursos sociales que existen en una sociedad. Este trabajo estudia los discursos sobre la naturaleza, el territorio y lo rural en Cuenca, Ecuador. [...]
This work critically explores the construction of ideas about nature and territory, contrasting them with the Andean indigenous paradigm of Sumak Kawsay. Included in the 2008 Ecuadorian Constitution, Sumak Kawsay and the rights of nature were then transformed into national public policies. [...]

21 p, 268.6 KB Contesting urban metabolism : struggles over waste-to-energy in Delhi, India / Demaria, Federico (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Schindler, Seth (University of Sheffield. Department of Geography)
Recent scholarship on the materiality of cities has been criticized by critical urban scholars for being overly descriptive and failing to account for political economy. We argue that through the conceptualization of urban metabolisms advanced by ecological economists and industrial ecologists, materialist and critical perspectives can be mutually enriching. [...]
