Dismantling Green Colonialism Energy and Climate Justice in the Arab Region

The Arab region, a geopolitical nexus with significant fossil fuel reserves and a colonial legacy, harbours untapped potential for green energy. Yet, it faces severe impacts of climate change, as seen in recurrent heatwaves, devastating sandstorms, and catastrophic floods. "Dismantling Green Colonialism: Energy and Climate Justice in the Arab Region," a thought-provoking book co-published with  Pluto Press, addresses the urgent need for a just energy transition in the region.

This collaborative dossier stands as a manifesto calling for a just transition in the Arab region—including Palestine, Jordan, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, Western Sahara, and Morocco. It is informed by a class analysis and a political economy approach, which are fundamental for challenging and dismantling the hegemonic and oppressive  structures that have long hindered the prospects of a just and sustainable future for the region.
