Natural Resources Justice and Capabilities
Access to natural resources is vital for the satisfaction of basic human needs. Since natural resources are necessary drivers to a flourishing existence, an account of justice ought to regulate their correct use. My research focuses on theories of distributive justice and territorial rights that are concerned with the fair distribution of natural resources among individuals and communities at the global level. The aim is to ground a new theoretical framework to address this issue and to solve existing shortcomings in current theories of natural resources justice, by relying on the concept of capabilities as the correct metric of justice.
