Olivia continues to explore the topic of “the legal imagination” with Professor Carmen Gonzalez, world-renowned expert in international environmental law, human rights and the environment, environmental justice, and food security.
Professor Gonzalez explains how “international law is the history of colonialism” and demonstrates how a new legal framework can challenge the doctrines of international law and their consequences on the environment.
You can find the article "Climate Change & Racial Capitalism" by Professor Gonzalez here: lpeproject.org/blog/climate-chan…acial-capitalism/. (And if you are a Loyola student be on the lookout for Professor Gonzalez's International Environmental Law class, you won’t regret it!)
