Andrea Piea is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology at LSE. Andrea is a legal and environmental anthropologist whose research sits at the interface between environmental humanities, decolonial political theory, and the critical study of the commons. He currently leads a comparative ethnographic project called Justice After Carbon which explores the emerging political antagonism (as well as ideological convergence) between indigenous movements, global civil society practitioners, western climate justice activists, and the Chinese energy industry as it moves to sustainably redesign energy production in and for the Global South. A multi-sited project, Justice after Carbon explores climate politics from the vantage point of compromised subjectivities: experts, activists, and lawyers whose racialised and classed positionality inevitably shape the form and direction of their political agency in the climate crisis.
