Questions on which further research about urban socio-ecological movements is needed

  • How and why they change, expand or rescale their spatial focus
  • How and why they are copied by groups in other places
  • How and why they interconnect and share resources with other groups
  • How meanings and values are constructed and contested within these trans-local and trans-national networks (Miller, 2004)
  • How are the understandings of gender/environment relations in one group projected, evaluated and reworked when they engage with groups elsewhere?
  • How much have these meanings and values been universalised? (and if so: how do communities in particular places ground these universalised meanings and values and with what implications?)
  • Routledge 2007: what about uneven power relations, disagreements and fractures within these networks?
  • What about groups that seldom engage with groups elsewhere? Because many urban socio-ecological movements are local and only interested in local issues, in the environmental injustices that affect them, not so much in where mentioned injustices might be relocated.
  • Massey 2007: how socio-ecological movements perceive other places and communities and how this influences their responsibilities and interconnections with them
