Author: Floyd, Myron F; Johnson, Cassandra Y.;
Source: Leisure Sciences. 24:59-77,2002
Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication
Description: Much of the research on environmental justice centers on environmental hazards. This article offers an overview of the emergence of environmental justice issues in outdoor recreation management and research. The authors argue that a major challenge to future research on environmental justice in outdoor recreation is clarifying definitions of environmental justice and generating awareness of the different dimensions of environmental justice. The authors also examine recent empirical studies of environmental justice issues related to outdoor recreation and other resource amenities. Based on an overview of the literature and these recent studies, the authors set forth some broad outlines to guide future research.
Keywords: environmental justice, equity, environmental racism, outdoor recreation, tourism development, policy
