This symposium is part of the series Thinking and Enacting Justice in a Multispecies World (12 – 21 June) run by the FASS FutureFix Research Theme ‘Multispecies Justice‘
Anthropogenic climate change has arguably prompted a wide ranging discussion on the relationship between market economies and environmental sustainability. At an analytic level geographers, animals studies scholars and political economists have been unpacking key concepts such as property, labour, development and capital; while there has been a growing interest in how to better govern markets towards more just and sustainable economies.
This symposium explores different perspectives on the problem of how markets, resources, money, labour and capital might be reconfigured in a multispecies context.

About the Thinking and Enacting Justice in a Multispecies World series:
As the pressures of human exploitation of the planet intensify, it is becoming increasingly apparent that our existing frameworks for conceptualising justice are not up to the task of attending to the multiple dimensions and experiences of injustice amongst humans, non-human animals, and the environment.
Bringing together scholars working in a range of disciplines across the globe, the aim of this series is to establish and lay the foundations for a research agenda on multispecies justice. Together, we hope to start mapping the state of the field and its possible trajectory into the future.
