Post Paris reflections: fossil fuels, human rights and the need to excavate new ideas for climate justice

Julia Dehm

Keywords: Paris Agreement; fossil fuels; climate change; climate justice; human rights; transnational law; infrastructure; global value chains

This article offers some preliminary reflections on what has arguably been a blind spot in discussions both of the Paris Agreement and in the literature on climate change and human rights, namely the continual extraction of fossil fuels. The present article suggests three analytical tools – a ‘transnational law of carbon’, infrastructure and global value chains – that may offer possibilities for rethinking the relationship between fossil fuels and international law, as well as bringing questions of justice and rights into the centre of the frame.
