This introduction to the special issue engages with the notion of disaster justice to
foreground the political in the analyses of socio-environmental crises
and interrogates its entanglements with economic, cultural, material,
spatial, and ecological forces. The research articles and reflective essays
in this collection move beyond the usual disaster-related buzzwords and
interrogate three intersecting themes: grassroots agency and contestation
amid uncertainty, democratic processes in post-disaster contexts, and
the materiality of (in)justice and hope. The findings and insights offer
conceptual provocations and urge scholars to “deepen the pot” of research
on disaster justice praxis in the Philippines.
