The Environment and Social Justice in Chinese Documentaries: Crisis or Hope?

Research output: Chapter in book/report/conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

This chapter analyses how several documentaries touch on the environmental issues in relation to social justice and ethnic minorities, such as the over-exploitation of natural resources and disruption of the ecological equilibrium in the ethnic regions, but some of them generally maintain a conservative political position for upholding state sovereignty and fail to do justice to the subject.
