We will start this session with some historical perspective on reparations and the call for historical culprits of climate disruption to pay its climate debt. We will reflect on justice making and how different pillars of justice-making are situated, who has agency and which processes and focus belong to each strand.We will look at some examples of reparative justice struggles and where they stand. We will close with imagining restorative justice together.
