New paper publication on “The Gezi Park Resistance from an Environmental Justice and Social Metabolism Perspective”
Co-authored by Begüm Özkaynak, Cem İskender Aydιn, Pιnar Ertör-Akyazι & Irmak Ertör, this article on the Gezi Park resistance was published this January 2015 in the Capitalism Nature Socialism journal.
“The aim of this commentary is threefold: First to link the Gezi Park case to other environmental conflicts and resistance movements in Turkey over urban enclosures, mega-projects, mining, energy projects, and environmental degradation […] Second, to situate these environmental conflicts, including the Gezi Park resistance, within the broader context of Turkey’s structural change, economic growth dynamics, and social metabolism. And third, to discuss longer-term effects of the Gezi protests on the dynamics of environmental politics in Turkey”.
