Article on intersectionality, masculinity theory and urban climate policy

|   News

Our former intern Angelica Wågström has published an article on masculinity which focuses on urban climate policy and examines whether an awareness of intersectionality and norms of masculinity can improve urban climate policy in terms of climate justice. Her conclusions are based on the cases of Helsinki (Finland) and Johannesburg (South Africa). In her article Angelica draws on claims that the “ecomodern masculinity” is hegemonic in climate change policy-making today and concludes that "an awareness of norms of masculinity as well as intersecting social structures of domination, is a first step to designing urban climate policies that contribute to climate justice".
