Abstract and Keywords

In the context of the Copenhagen meeting on climate change in December 2009, the world witnessed a convergence of different civil society actors who were focused upon the collective demand of climate justice. This article is concerned with how solidarities might be forged between different communities and civil society actors within the context of how injustices associated with climate change are experienced differently in different places. This article argues that a spatialized understanding of both particular placed-based struggles as well as how such struggles attempt to forge solidarities beyond the local are crucial in order to construct meaningful translocal alliances. It briefly discusses ‘climate justice’, as interpreted by civil society actors and also examines the context of a recent fieldwork on Bangladesh with a landless peasants' movement concerned with issues of food sovereignty and climate change. It further considers the potentials for constructing ‘translocal climate justice solidarities’.

Keywords: translocal climate justice solidarities, civil society actors, translocal alliances, food sovereignty, climate justice agenda, Copenhagen
