Justice, Equity and Geography: The normative basis of Economic Geography

Abstract : As in the other social sciences, the normative dimensions of territorial development - of what would constitute "just" cities, regions and patterns of development -cover both the process of resource creation and allocation, and the outcomes of such processes. A geographical approach to justice and equity must consider not just the social (groups) and individual agents, but also a third, necessarily collective, level of aggregation: the territory, and how all of these may interact in shaping process and outcomes. Drawing on recent work in economic and urban geography, as well as the other social sciences, this paper proposes elements of an updated "progressive" research agenda, with the goal of informing rigorous policy-oriented geographical research
