Social Justice and community: forestry, energy, housing and land reform

Social Justice and community: forestry, energy, housing and land reform

Stark inequalities in land ownership, economic and social inequality in Scotland’s rural and urban environments can be traced to a historical processes of dispossession and exclusion.  This project contends that addressing these requires a land reform that acknowledges the visibility of past injustice in the present and determines that the dispossessed are active in resource redistribution towards a socially just future
