Abstract or Introduction

This paper analyzes how aspects of environmental injustices are staged and negotiated in the plots of both contemporary novels "Animal's People" by Indra Sinha and "Oil on water" by Helon Habila. Here, paticular focus is placed on the parallels between the two novels as well as on the divide between the Global South and the Global North.

The subsequent chapter outlines the theoretical framework of environmental justice by portraying its emergence, its four different aspects and its application to the division between the Global South and the North. The third chapter applies each aspect of environmental justice to the plot of the two novels. Here, the aspect of social injustice refers primarily to the social consequences of corporate and government activities. Lastly, chapter four summarizes the results and draws conclusions.
