Abstract

The paper explores the potential for a politically grounded theory of justice in and to the environment. The point of departure is explained from understandings of environmental ethics that presuppose a global ontological framework. The question of justice is located in a particular conflict of interest, that between the Australian mining giant BHP and the traditional landowners of an era on the Ok Tedi river in Papua New Guinea. This context is used to confront the problem of universality versus culture-bound conceptions of justice
