Bioeconomy and Global Inequalities

This is the title of an open access book with 15 chapters focusing on the meanings, agendas, as well as the local and global implications of bioeconomy and bioenergy policies in and across South America, Asia and Europe. It explores how the ‘energy transition’ reinforces and challenges socio-ecological inequalities. Various conceptual discussions and case studies – from knowledge extraction to sexual exploitation and labour migration – clarify how the extraction of biomass sources from agricultural and forest territories affect societies.
