Toxic Expertise: Environmental Justice and the Global Petrochemical Industry

Alice Mah, University of Warwick

Conférence animée par Nils Kessel

Toxic Expertise is a 5-year European Research Council-funded research project (2015- 2020) that examines the contested politics of making claims about the health impacts of toxic pollution. Toxic expertise has a double meaning: expertise about the effects of toxic pollution, and the toxic nature of expertise itself. The research focuses on the global petrochemical industry as a significant source of pollution, with unequal regulations and risks across different countries and populations. Debates about the global petrochemical industry reflect competing interests between jobs, prosperity, and health. This project offers the first systematic sociological analysis of the global petrochemical industry in relation to corporate social responsibility and environmental justice. This presentation will provide an overview of research findings of our comparative research to date, focusing in particular on case study research conducted in the United States and China.
